Starts fine but dies in 15 to 30 seconds. Then can start right away and dies again. Suspect main fuel pump.

As decribed the engine stalls after 20s. This happened directly after refueling.
Runs fine but when you turn it off it won't start back up for 30 minutes to an hour sometimes.

Stalling out mechanic says fuel pump. Could it be any oyhrr part of fuel pump?
I first noticed it when I started my car and drove it like less then a block and the car just died on me. So I veered off to the side of the road and then put it in park. I started the car again and started to drive and in like 5 seconds died again.

Car "died " on me on x-country trip while towing Airstream with Workshop! Message. Towed to VW , diagnosed as fuel pump. This was 6 days ago ( including weekend) parts were ordered but still have not come in to Sioux Falls. They had to send fuel sample in to VW Chicago to be tested to rule out fuel contamination. I have receipt for last gas purchased- 28 gal of diesel 2. This is business day 4 in the shop and no parts yet.

Engine began to stall after 30 seconds. Now, the motor turns, but the fuel lines from the sending unit and fuel filter housings are dryer than a desert. Changing filters, relays, and fuses availed nothing.

We have had many problems with our Touareg. Break pads wear way too fast Fuel pumps, both went out at 98K Transmission slips The vehicle has a very hard shift as if there is a 3 lb hammer hitting the transfer case. Buttons and knobs fall off all the time. Door handle broke off Both hood and hatch support shocks are shot.

Not fixed yet. Car began needing much longer crank time (not slow crank) to start. Also ran rough when cold.

I had first fuel pump break with 4000 miles and second one at 13000 miles. There is no warning of this happening it just shuts off. Hopefully V.W. has looked into this problem and switched to another manufacturer. But we know that won't happen.
