Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Hi.. I had a very similar problem recoverrd to are workshop by the A.A around a month ago.
Exactly the same problem (left to cool started.? Once worm or hot engine just turning over ?)
Afdter reading all known folts and finding nothing to do with what I'd wanted. It took some time ?
Cutting it sort if found when I replaced a intermittent faulty fuel relay and run till engine hot (untill cooling fan cut in) Then turned off engine .. on turning key to see if this had cured my problem?
The engine started frist turn of key after repeating this a number of times .. this car was now starting fine (whether hot or cold)
Hopefully this will be of some help to yourselves

can't say for sure but almost all engines that have come to me needing ether to cold start have poor compression. test the compression first.
you sould never need to use ether on a gas engine and very carefully on a diesel when very cold.

Hi, if the car turn over, and it don't start. Then it is like the
engine don't get fuel. Or bad a spark plugs. Most common problem is the
fuel pump going bad.
It could also be a bad fuse, but a easy way to check if the fuel pump is ok is to have someone stand at the back of the car when you turn the ignition. The fuel pump should make a buzzing sound for a few seconds. And if you don't start the car right away the fuel pump will stop.
If you don't hear any buzzing from the fuel pump/fuel tank then you have a bad fuel pump............

With the vehicle cool, remove the radiator cap, and manually pump the lower radiator hose until all the air is out of the system. That is how you get the air out of the system. If it is still overheating from there then you should check the fan to make sure that it is working correctly.
