Hi gmotsing,

As I recall, there are three pumps on the diesel Jetta.... One on the filter housing, in the engine compartment.....Two on the injector pump..... The head and Rotor and the delivery pump inside.... The only one I suggest you tackle, is the filter housing.

As a matter of interest, if your problem began by running out of fuel, there is a pumping device on top of the same filter housing, and there is a bleeding nipple too.... Pump the device until you feel the action becoming hard and then open the bleeding nipple and continue to pump until all the air is expelled....Close it of pump some more and while still pumping, get someone to crank the engine....make sure that the park brake is on and the gear shift in neutral....or park if it's an automatic....

If that doesn't work, then check for leakage along the fuel lines....Still no luck....A repair shop is the next stop.... I think that you'll need to have the injector pump and the injectors repaired serviced and re-calibrated.... and sorry to be the bearer of sad tidings.... That's going to be expensive....

Best of luck

SOURCE: I have air coming into the fuel system on my jetta diesel

NO it does not have a fuel pump in the tank. It uses vaccum.
and if their are tiny bubbles in the clear line coming from the fuel filter to the injection pump that is normal. Even when the car is not running it is normal to see bubbles in the line. hope this helps.

SOURCE: i have a 1996 jetta turbo diesel and the fuel pump

Fuses wont help. If the fuel pump isn't working, then you need to change it. Second thing, maybe its not a fuel pump, if you will describe the problem we could find out is it realy fuel pump fault.

Where is the fuel filter on diesel

Under vehicle, passenger side, below rear seating area, mounted on frame rail in fuel line. Be sure to fill with diesel and then use the primer at the pump to bleed the system so as to not drain you battery while cranking or possibly destroy your starter.

Low Fuel Pressure on Landrover Freelander TD4

From 53 reg onwards, diesel pump is under R.H. rear wheel arch, hidden by the plastic wheel arch liner. Older versions have combined fuel pump/sender in the tank (under R.H part of rear seat).
You should be able to hear a faint purr from the pump when ignition is turned on but engine not yet running.

Put diesel fuel in on accident pumped fuel out from fuel line in front of filter, filled up truck with regular fuel now runs bad and fuel pump is on continuous when running and pump ismaking loud noise

The diesel fuel is not a good lubricant for the pump and plugged the sock inside the tank replace the fuel pump and sock also pull spark plugs and clean I am sure it is running like ******* the diesel coats the plugs so they won't fire without being cleaned. Gas is much thinner than diesel and the gas lubricates the pump once the diesel washed off the bearings in the pump if most likely finished off a pump about to go anyway.17 years is a long time for new pump to last and in 92 they were not putting in the junk they are now in our fuels. If you need more help or want a price on the pump let me know.
