Having problems with your 2005 Volkswagen Jetta ?
I went and put unleaded regular gas into my 2005 Volkswagen Jetta drove home and when I went to start car again, it will turn on for about 5-10 seconds and turns itself right back off!! PLEASE HELP!!
It is very possible that u have gotten your hands on some gas with water in it or some other type of contamination, it is not common buy have seen it happen more than once.
Are you sure you did not put diesel in by accident or E-85? The VW will run on regular gas(not recomended) but diesel or E-85 gas is Bad for it. The E-85 can clog up stuff. You will need to drain and flush the fuel system, a new pump might help and all filters as well. Sounds like you got E-85 or Diesel by mistake. If this is helpful, please leave feedback. Thanks, SP
