It sounds like the speed bump hit and pinched off the fuel inlet line. You'll have to check the line more closely cut out the bad section and repair it with compression fittings.

Have a load test done on the battery as the glo-plugs should get very hot very quickly. Diesel engines have to have a high rpm crank speed or they will not start and will leave unburnt fuel in the cylinders ( wet glo- plugs). Every indication is that the battery is flat or is not the right capacity for the car.

(2010 VW Jetta GLTDI TRN:AT STK: V4565 ENG: 2.0 Liter FI Turbo) Turns out my normal gas pump is no longer diesel. The station was bought out and the re-did everything. I filled up normally, (tank was...

Hopefully you didnt ruin your engine. Diesel fuel has lubricating properties to it where gas dosent. It could have also burnt the pistons. Was the pump marked well? If not i would go after the station for damages. We had this happen several years ago, but opposite. We had a station down the road that put diesel in where the super gas pump used to be. They paid for towing to our shop and for us to remove the diesel fuel from the fuel systems. What a mess that was. Luckily no major damage was done to any. I would definately get that checked out by a mechanic who is familiar with vw diesel engines.

Car will not speed up when revs go up on automatic a3 diesel audi when i pull over and stop engine it drives ok then after 5 miles it looses speed even though revs are normal

Start by checking the fluid level, some of these dont have a dip stick and get low on trany fluid and cause this problem, i would start with that first then scan computer to see if any codes are stored and last would be an over haul of trany.

I ran out of diesel on A4 1.9TDI B6 2003 avant refuelled and have been unable to restart. Fuel is getting to the filter and tandem pump

Have you tried removing the airlock. When you run out of oil and keep restarting the oil goes so low that air enters the fuel system and gets locked inside. there is a pump on the fuel pump. Unlatch it and pump till it becomes free. Then crank the engine and hear it purr.

Car works fine untill left overnight then wont start in the morning have to prime the diesel with the inline suction device under the bonnet then starts and runs fine

Air is getting into the fuel system allowing the diesel to drain back to the tank. Check fuel filter is tight, look along fuel line for leaks at any of the joints etc.

My Audi A4 2000 TDI year 2005 has run on two tanks of Bio fuel recently and it hasn't recovered... started stuttering. Fuel system has been flushed out, air flow mand air flow meter has been changed but...

Audi 1.9 TDI and 2.0 TDI engines with pump-nozzle injection system, (year 2005 included), don't have permission to run with Bio fuel !!!
First you must replace fuel filter, interflow a quality Diesel additive (for 60 liters Diesel fuel dosage) fill up tank with Diesel fuel and run at least 300 km on highway at 3000-3500 rpm in 4-th gear.
I recommend you Foerch Diesel Reiniger System additive! I use this additive from 3 years ago and is certified on Audi TDI engines!

Urgent: Run out of diesel

Hi again,

This link might provide you with some of the images for the engine component locations. You would be interested with the fuel lines going into the Common Rail Injection System as they would be providing the inflow of diesel fuel to the high pressure pump for the injectors. Additionally, you might find this page an interesting read with illustrations.

My apologies that I can not email you directly due to certain restrictions.

Good luck again.
