Having problems with your 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI ?
VW Jetta starts, then turns off immediately
\015 My '01 Manual-drive Jetta sometimes starts, then turns off immediately. It turns over, and starts completely, but after 1 second it shuts off, like it is out of battery or something. I usually have to rev the engine to get it to stay on... It seems to happen in all circumstances (when the engine is hot and cold, when the weather is hot cold, after it's been sitting for a long time or less than 5 min). \015
Try checking the throttle position sensor or the idle control valve both can keep it from running.
Did you ever get this problem fixed? my 2000 VW Jetta has been doing the same thing for years and ive taken it everywhere, no one can figure it out...
