I recently bought a 2006 VW beetle 1.9tdi new to the VW world just to drive to work and around town. I am having a issue when I try to take off from a stop the car is wanting to shut off, if you press the pedal fast it will shut off every time ease into the pedal and it almost never shuts off. One thing to note the camshaft senor is unplugged if plugged in the car will not start..... the previous owner did take it to a VW shop and they noted the cam sensing gear tabs was bent they did straightened them, I don't currently have a VCDS thinking I should order one. It does have two codes P0263 and P0272 contribution/balance problem with #1 and #4 cylinder.

Any advice would be great thank you!

Here is a list of the stuff I have done

New timing belt/ head reworked timing belt broke. "previous owner"
New ac compressor
Oil filter
Oil
Fuel filter
Coolant flush
Thermostat Replaced
Serpentine belt Replaced
Crankshaft position sensor
Fresh fuel

Is that a BEW or ALH engine? From the sounds of it I am thinking lift pump but if its an ALH you dont have a lift pump

I would check your lift pump to make sure its running and sending plenty of fuel forward to the tandem pump.
thanks for the reply! I will do some research and look into it!

Maybe I should consider replacing the injectors ? I did already flush them didn’t try to remove and clean them though.

You might try contacting KermaTDI and ask what they would charge you to rebuild them. I know you can get a set of 4 new nozzles from them for around $300 and they do rebuilds. You might just have a clogged nozzle

Bottom dollar new is 450 each. I would look at buying 2 or four used injectors with reasonable miles. 150 to 250 should cover that. PD injectors are long lived. As long as they aren't too far over 200k would be fine. Don't forget seal kits and bolts.
Even if you got four and one or two are bad you still have two known good injectors.
Places to buy used
Classifieds here or tdi club
Craigslist partout's
Ebay is where I got mine. Seller specific to vw. Set of 4 less than 200k they all worked out and only $175.
Only get exact part number that is on your injectors. If they say brm or bhw injectors will work, they might, but not very well.

I believe it takes a ton of cranking because their is no fuel at all. Maybe pull a vacuum on the return line or apply power to the lift pump to get all the air out. Look for a pm later tonight before you contact the seller.
