Volkswagen Beetle TDI Vehicles Using Biofuels May Have Injection Pump Failures

(7 reports)

Cars using biofuel typically have problems with injection pump failures; symptoms can include a "no start" condition or external pump leaks.

Had hart-to-start for a few days then refused to catch even though cranked strongly. Independent mechanic diagnosed as injector pump failure. Running on B-20 and occasional B-99 biodiesel for last 30K miles. No leaking anywhere. Very disappointing. -
