SOURCE: 2001 vw golf 1.9 gt tdi miss fire

if you have a pd engine and you say that it miss fires i would change the wire loom to the injectors if it persists the air flow meter is on the blink, has you car ever gone into a limp mode status were you couldn't rev then check your turbo ,this may sound strange but just had a 150bhp tdi which was remapped with a very simular problem

1995 volkswagen passat vr6 wont start the injectors are getting fuel but its not getting fuel to the engine. The injectors are getting spark and the fuel pressure is good.


if it fires then dies, you have to reset the alarm system with the key/remotes???otherwise you need to plug in the diagnostic computer(saves hours of "fun")

My golf 1.9 tdi is miss-firing


Check the fuel lines, fuel filter, what is the mileage? If it is high than it might a sign of injector pump or injectors.

2004 vw Passat TDI 130bhp not starting after >8hrs


simplest answer first,and this does not apply to a hot engine,The engine heaters work from a time switch on the door(would you believe)and the routine is, open door,climb in,put on belt,put key in ignition and turn on when orange light goes out.this allows the cold start heaters time to work(about 20 secs).sounds a pain but the number of times this has been all it is,when you put key in ignition, the fuel pump charges the system.hence the squirt noise,also the car has to reccognise the key(immobiliser system)also try using wynns/redexe to clean injectors...

2004 vw passet 1.9 turnsover but wont start


VW are bad about moisture getting within the coil and other components that fire the engine. It should still start even with a bad plug or wire, it would run like ****, so it makes me think the coil isn't firing through the plug wires. Get the coil checked out. Hopefully the fuel pump hasn't went out.

Hello, I have a problem with my passat TDI, 90 HP, year 1997, motor type AHU. I doesnt't start, because i doesn't get any fuel. But when I start the engine with help of start spray, I works normally. ???...


You need to bleed the system.
make sure your fuel filter is primed.
I disconected the fuel line going to the fuel pump and attached a break bleeder to the line, once fuel is pooring out, conect the line.
I then cracked two of the injector lines about 1.5 turns, or until I could wiggle the line just a little. then have somebody crank the car over, when fuel shoots out of the injectors stop the car tigheten up the injectors and fire it up. it worked for me.
