Drove 500 miles stopped it and then tried to drive it and it would kill and not move..!
I am stuck on a St. and it starts but kills when I put it in gear..!...FIRST time.
I've had it put on diagnostic by vw mechanic and looked at by another one with no luck. I changed the fuel filter and tried diesel fuel additive. They tell me it could be injectors but i don't like the work could. Any idea's would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Terry
All glo plugs replaced as well as girdle belt. Now they are saying I need a tandem fuel pump replaced for oil & fuel leak. Also told the outer CV joints need replacing as well as #4 glo plug. This is like a $4000 fix. The crazy part is the non starting issue is intermittent so I never know when it will happen.
Anytime wheel turns or bumps up or down. Runs fine, alignment OK. Just replaced the axle and CV 18 months ago. Any thoughts.
Interested in how usual this is. The total repair cost is $$4100 parts plus labor of $1300. I have kept my car in good condition, always bring in for maintenance and repair. It has 130,000 miles, mostly freeway driving.
