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

On my way to the Airport to pick up a friend, and suddenly the car started to misfire, and lurching, and then stalled. car would start up but as soon as you tried to accelerate the car would Stall. Never made it to the airport, instead call for flat bed. Car was working perfectly yesterday.
Runs fine but when you turn it off it won't start back up for 30 minutes to an hour sometimes.

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.

The car is hard starting after filling with gas . The fuel filter has been changed and also the fuel pump. It still turns over for along time before it starts after fill up.

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.

I would like to know how much it can cost to replace the fuel pump and the fuel filter of my Touareg 3.2 V6 2005 thanks Marco
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.

Engine stalls after 30 seconds. You can switch on enginer everytime, but it stalls after 30 seconds or so.
