Engine cranks but will not start
2002 jetta tdi auto 122000 miles. Engine cranks but will not start. It seems like itís not getting any fuel. Timing belt was replaced about 275 miles ago.
Heres the story. Wife was driving car. Crusing around 20 mph. engine shut off. Timing belt broke. I replaced the timing belt and car started back up. I sent the crank to TDC using the timing marks you can see through the hole in the top of transmission. I could not find any timing marks on the cam shaft pully so I took the valve cover off. I made sure the 2 first lobes made a V. removed vacuum pump from end of cam shaft (if thatís what its called). Used that tool to hold cam in place. Locked injection pump in place with lock tool that goes through hole in timing gear into a small hole. Put timing belt on. Turned engine manually 3 times. put car back together. Car started after about 10 seconds. Drove car for 3 days (about 275 miles).
On the day the car broke down the 2nd time, heres what happened. Drove car to work in the morning (55 miles). Later that day I drove from work to 711 (1 miles away). went to gas station (next to 711) with diesel. Refueled car. (shut car off and it started back up each time at 711 and gas station). whet back to work (2 miles round trip). Came back out 3 hours later and car would crank but not start. Iím hoping itís one of these things. Fuel filter or maybe timing is not perfect (I donít know how that could be since the car ran for 3 days) I read something about setting the injection pump timing using some type of dial that you screw into the back of the injection pump but the car ran for 3 days. I checked fuses.
I pulled fuel hoses off fuel filter and fuel came out. anti shutter valve is not stuck shut. Any ideas ? thanks
