My my name is Tony in Michigan. I am also new to the TDI world. I just purchased a 05 Passat TDI. Currently I working through some issues. It currently will not start. The motor turns over and comes close to starting but just wont. I changed the filter this morning but this made no difference. The car will start for a couple seconds with starting fluid. So it is defiantly is a fuel delivery issue. The lift pump does turn on but I have not pressure checked it yet.

Welcome to the forum.


Its nice to see you made an intro on your own. ;)

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.

How long is a piece of string?

That could be many things.

Does the fuel pump prime when you turn the ignition on?

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.

Thank you! So far I have changed the lift pump in the tank. The original one was putting out pressure but not well and sounded bad. Tomorrow I am going to replace the check valve on the fuel filter as well as put new fuel lines on. The rubber lines are not in good shape and I don’t want to have any leaking issues. Tomorrow I will scan it and check for a crank sensor input. Last time I checked I didn’t notice if the rpm gauge moved while cranking. Thank you again
