My car keeps randomly dying when coming to a stop. I can drive a day or two without it happening where it won’t die when coming to a stop. There is no warning that this is going to happen, it just shuts off and then It won’t start back up right away. I have to crank it a few times to get it started. What does happen everytime is that once it is warm I avoid shutting it off until I get to my final destination because it doesn’t want to restart. It cranks and cranks and will finally start. This seems to be only when it is warm. If its been sitting all day/night it will crank right up, I can shut it off immediately and it will start right back up. Im not sure if this is a cam position sensor issue? Crank position sensor? Fuel? I have not scanned it yet but I will hopefully today to give you guys some more information on it. I appreciate the help!

First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

Forum Rules and Guidelines


This is a new forum layout which is owned by a company last year that doesn't give a dam with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or original similes which they refuse to install. It doesn't show the car spec/location.

Add your car specs to your signature that will show on every post you make.

We Are Live - Community Feedback

This has been talked about many times.

I've made a poll which no one has posted in, there are a few votes and comments.

Do you like the new forum features?

Wiki pages have been restored as of 7th December, I asked where is the link it should be on top of the main forum.

You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

I would replace fuel filter to start. Then check fuel pump
