*Assuming everything ran fine prior to running out of petrol*, the most likely cause is air in your fuel lines or fuel injectors.

For a Volkswagen, the most sure fix is to have a Volkswagen mechanic inspect and maybe clean and prime your injectors. If you are handy enough, you could possibly do this yourself, but it can be quite hard.

Also, there are some additives that claim to be able to fix this in a bottle, but there efficacy is marginal at best.

Last, this problem can sometimes work itself out, though the process of waiting for the bubbles to clear (you may have to endure many quits by your engine) can be more than frustrating.

I hope this helps.

Hi. I have a problem with my VW Passat. It is 2.0 tdi sport 2006 The engine stopped as I ws driving. About 2 months ago I stupidly run out of diesel before I got yo the garage. Put diesel in it and...


Hi there?
It sounds like the injectors are blocked. the reason i say this is because the bottom of the tank is full of durt and it must have got through when it was low in diesel.
You need to get the car scanned, if the code p1517 comes up then the injectors are block for sure.
Good luck.........
