Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Recently my 2000 Jetta with 120000 miles (which I love) has been stalling out after about 15 minutes of driving time. Sometimes it fires right back up but most of the time it needs to sit for about an hour then it fires up. Unfortunetly I haven't been able to hook up a code reader yet because the car won't run long enough to get it to an Auto Zone. I've looked on some other repair sites and while I found a number of other owners who report the same problem, I have yet to find a decent solution to the problem.
Any and all suggestion will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
I heard of an issue with the fuel pick up in the tank. It has a check valve that gets hung up or freezes in the colder climates.

I have a Jetta GLS 2000 2.0L Gas model, at 130,000KM. I had a similar problem & I had to replace the "fuel relay". this work was performed at VW at my cost, but now it runs great.
