Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi Last week on my way to a wedding! my trusty sdi kept on cutting out and losing power. It started up straight away to start with but with subsequent attempts to start the time between starting and cutting out got less. Now it wont start but does turn over. I have changed the fuel filter and fuel with air gaps is flowing into the fuel pump when engine is turning over. If i just turn the ignition on there is a weird buzing sound coming from the valve type thing between the air filter and air inlets. Also when i turn the ignition off i get 3 beeps from dash and oil light is coming on, I have checked oil and it is full. any advice or suggestions much appreciated
I do not know year, mileage.Tune up,coils, wires.I had problem for last three mouths ,last night found the problem,change spark plugs,fuel filter,change coils and module still problem,Bad wire #3,now is fine.

When you hook the pressure test guage to shrader valve on fuel rail what it reads is what the pressure is from pump, around 60 p.s.i. all you need to do is hook up the guage and turn on key, you do not have to turn engine over, and if pump is good it will shoot up to 58 or 60 right now.

Hi You need to get the ecu checked for fault codes if there are none it is possibly low fuel pressure you should allso check this have you changed the fuel filter or opened any fuel lines this could introduce air
which will lower fuel pressure.Good luck Chris.

You said you have fuel flowing from the inlet line of the injection pump? But not at the injector lines?

Sounds alot like the ignition sensor. In my old Chevys it was under the dist cap, mounted on the dist itself. Mine was flat, slightly curved rectangle shape, with two flat prongs coming out both sides. If it would get an internal break in it, you cant see it. I would have the same problem as you, part was only about $12. And comes out with unscrewing two screws.
Might want to give it a shot.

SOURCE: 2004 vw polo 1.9 sdi twist.
sounds like the service reminder was not reset during the service.
switch off the ignition. press and hold the button on the dash. switch on the ignition. release the button. now twist the button clockwise . the spanner disappears. switch off ignition.
