Question about 1999 Volkswagen New Jetta
One time it will start next time it won't. it spins over but acts like it has no compression. I've changed the fuel shut off and the starter. Thought I had it fixed then it started doing it again. When it does start it runs fine no issues with it at all. Does not run rough or stall. Almost like it's not getting current to something but I'm not sure what.
Volkswagen Jetta tdi 1.9 ALH 1999.5 has new body style
I would start by changing the fuel filter out on the top of the pass engine compartment. If that doesn't change a thing next I would look at the EGR valve operation. Sometimes it will stick and cause a no start. Lastly check to see if you have any possible fuel leaks from injector pump and lines off pump. The system could be bleeding down.

find your local vw service center and see if they can plug their computer in to see if there are any codes on the cpu. there may be one for an intermitent for the turbo. i ran into the same problem last month and it was the turbo veins are sticky so occasionaly it lack power going up hills. it did not cause the check engine light to come on, but there was a code on the cpu when they checked it. if it happens again while you are driving, pull over, shut the car off for 10-30 secs then restart it and see if it makes a difference. when it happened to me i called my guy and thats what he had me do and it was like a new car after that.

The only special tool I can think of is a big box of band-aides........
If you've changed a motor before then you know what you're doing.
Good luck, and make sure there are no kids around when you start cursing..lol

its pretty new so im guessings its the oxygen sensor needs replaced, otherwise it might be the catalytic convertor the sensor is cheap the catlytic convertor not so cheap

this is a common problem for these cars glow plugs go bad like spark plugs however the smoke would lead to bad mass airflow meter. it is not telling ecu corrcet miss. disconnect mass airflow meter. when cold see if this makes it start better. it should would means you need new m.a.f. glow plug issue take a test light place clamp on positive of battery then pull off glow plug connectors place tip of test light on glow plug the bad one will have a dull light unlike the good one which will be brighter. will need new plugs and wire harness four **** connectors and wire striper and crimper will fix concern good luck

CHECK MODEL NUMBER OF ONE YOU ALREADY HAVE IN CAR, OR BETTER STILL BUY A MANUAL FOR YOUR CAR AND LOOK UP ANY FUTURE PROBLEMS THAT WILL ACURE.
