2001 Volks TDI 1.9

Hi---needs some advice. I ran my 01 TDI our of fuel. I know---not very bright. I have it running after bleeding out the air. Now the check engine light came on and it wont shift into overdrive. Can this be code be reset? It appears to be in limp mode? Was not having this problem before battery died trying to restart after running out of fuel. Appreciate your thoughts. Mike

SOURCE: Check engine light

A multi misfire may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty spark plug or wires, Faulty coil (pack), Faulty oxygen sensor(s), Faulty fuel injector(s), Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages, Faulty camshaft position sensor, Defective computer.

The engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wire, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the the problems were faulty fuel injectors. 

Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

Good luck and hope this information helps, keep me posted, be glad to help you get the truck running 100% again. Not sure if your running a K&N air filter, and if you are there may be a flim of oil on the MAF sensor that is making you run lean. You may want to spray down the MAF sensor with a can of MAF cleaner.

How to bleed the fuel system in the 2009 Mondeo after changing the fuel filter on a diesel


You don't. You just crank the engine until it starts. Modern vehicles work on a pressurised system with a return back to the tank. The fuel is pumped from the tank to the injectors and excess fuel is returned to the tank.

Is there a fuel pump reset on a 01 TDI jetta ? I ran out of diesel AMD now it won't start


When diesels run out of fuel they fill the lines with air. To get it to start you have to bleed the air out of the system starting at the fuel filter pump and any where else there is a bleed screw. IF you have or can get your hands on a owners manual or a work shop manual for your car then the process and location of bleeders will be explained.

2005 vw polo 1.9 tdi wont start


if it starts when you pour fuel in the intake.. then fuel is not reaching the tbi from the tank..you say you put a new fuel pump on this..did you bleed the fuel lines? if not do this because there is an airlock in those lines..either you need to open a fuel line at the tbi unit to bleed it all out.. or be looking at a clogged up fuel filter..

2001 jetta wont start after running out of gas


Your fuel injection lines have air in them. TDIClub.com has the procedure you need to get it running again. It's fairly simple but involves some tools (mighty vac, flare nut wrenches and pliers). Important: continuing to just crank it without bleeding the air from the system will risk damage to your very expensive injection pump.

I have a 1993 volvo 240 ran out of gas fuel pump and filter are less than 1 year old i put gas into it and it cranks and want to start but it doesn't. i put 6 gallons of gas any advice


It depends on how far you ran it out of fuel. If you ran it until it would not run any more and then tried to start it again several times; you may need to bleed and prime the fuel system to get it started. You start at the line coming from the tank and move toward the fuel injectors. You have to loosen a fitting and have someone pump fuel until the air bubbles stop and then tighten. A friend once worked for two hours to get his tractor started after his daughter ran it out of fuel. This is why they recommend that you do not run a fuel injected car out of fuel and if you do to turn it off as soon as it starts to miss badly.

The information about how fast the car is traveling is taken from the 4 ABS wheel speed sensors on each hub. This is then transmitted from the ABS control unit to the instrument panal's control unit.

Fuel system


No, it will bleed it self after a few seconds of crank time, verify you have fuel pressure, there is a shradder valve in the line going to the fuel injectors( known as the fuel manifold), depress it while someone cranks the engine and see if fuel comes out, is there gas in you tank? guages can be wrong, seen it a hundred times, car towed in, $100 later it turns out the guage is wrong and the car ran out of gas.
