Could be a faulty fuel pump, they are notorious for acting unpredictibly when they start to go bad. My bet is in a week it won't start at all. Try banging on the fuel tank the next time it won't start, if that fixes it it is prbably a fuel pump.

Running you fuel pump until its at E is hard/bad on your fuel pump since gasoline is the fuel pumps lubrication.

SOURCE: vw polo 1995 has problem starting. when running

Several things to attack here... use a gauge to check fuel pressure at the injector manifold... should be 80 psi i believe... also check the fuel pump relay it may not be working right in the "start" position... (yes it's actually two relays in one... one for "start" and one for "run"... test this by attaching a light or meter at the pump terminals (under the car, right rear) if it doesn't light right up (or show battery voltage) when key is turned the problem is definitely electrical... if pressure is low, first replace the filters, if still low then suspect the pump(s). oh did I mention there are two pumps? One is called the transfer pump (in the tank) the other is the high pressure pump. Rule out the high pressure pump before suspecting the transfer pump.
Hope this helps...;-)

Check to see if it's getting gas or spray some starter fluid into intake. If it fires, change fuel filter first and try it without starter fluid. If it doesn't start then change fuel pump.

Have a 97 VW Passat VR6, it died one day as the check engine light came on, it would run for a few minutes and then die, running shorter each time. Took it in to the shop and got the fuel pump replaced,...

You need to check fuel pressure at the fuel rail.if pressure is at spec. Check spark at the plugs. Also replace relay for fuel pump if it isn't working. Could be a bad new fuel pump. Pull the codes first.

1996 VW Passat VR6 is overheating, upper hose is hot, lower hose is cool, fluid is not leaking out. What do you recommend?

Thermostat is most likely. Try that first, then my next choice would be water pump. Good luck.

When I try the key the car won't start. The code reads 00532, low voltage, will replacing the voltage regulator on the altenator fix the problem. There were not issues prior to this happening. now the...

Almost positive the voltage regulator on a B5 Passat is built into the alternator, so you would have to replaced the whole alternator.
It could definitely also be the battery too. How old is the battery?

95 passat vr6 giving problems

Adjust or replace the shiftlock sensor. It unlocks the shifting mechanism when you put your foot on the brake.

If there is an ignition problem, the tumbler will need replacement soon. This can be caused by an overloaded keychain. Best to do it now while it still is working, then have it fail and leave you stranded.
