if it runs on starting fluid its a fuel problem.. check fuel pressure even if its a couple of pounds off, the vehicle will not run. but using starting fluid may give you the extra poundage you need to make it run . also check vacuum hose at pressure regulator on fuel rail

Was any work just done to this car? Timing belt? It is rare that these pumps go bad but I have seen a few shell out. If you are not familiar with the ALH diesel engine I would not try to replace it. You should take it to a shop that specializes in VW's.

Hi, before the pump it is a loose connection or maybe a pin hole in the pipe, check all the connections and pipes for seepage, after the pump it will be a leak, i knowit sounds the same but after the pump the fuel is under pressure. It would appear that your system drawing air rather than forcing air in. daveg

take the shut off valve out of the injector pump and inside the valve is a round metal body with a rubber seal on the end ,check this seal hasnt swollen and stuck ,also check inside the primary fuel filter for any transparant pieces or crystal ,this is a problem i have been getting of late with people putting this bio fuel into the tank ,it causes this crystal stuff and it damages the injector pump as it passes through the filters and solidifies in the injector pump and kills them.just though before you start pulling it apart crack off a couple of injector pipes and get assistant to crank engine throttle wide open and see if its pumping fuel first this will give you some idea what to look for ,leave this answer in your e mail box so you can get back to me later after having a look ,but please remember the time zone difference
