It is hard starting my VW 2003 Jetta. It usually take 5 to 10 cranking before it turns over. Then it run normally. It only happens when the car has not been driven for about 6 hours.

Hard start and engine hesitation at highway speed


The PO441 has to do with your HO2S 2 (Oxygen sensor). You need to check to make sure the wire is not off of the sensor and check the grounds to the Oxygen sensor. Could be a bad Oxygen Sensor. The other code has to do with your Evap system Purge solenoid circuit. Has to do with detecting an improper voltage level. Could be a shorted Purge solenoid.

Engine shakes and hesitate when started until it idles down


Sounds like its missing on 1 or more cylinders. A check of the plugs and wires is in order, Could be a fouled plug or a loose/bad sparkplug wire. Best of luck.

97 GMC diesel just quit while driving on highway


First thing on a diesel problem such as yours, would be FUEL FILTER. On GM diesels a clogged filter affects a diesel even more than on a gas engine. NOW if the filter doesn't cure your problems, I'm afraid tio say the injection pump could be at fault, and thats another story. Hope this helps
