2001 jetta wagon vr6 starting issue

Post by PeeWeeMan91 on Mon Mar 21, 2011 8:45 am

Hey,
We have an issue with our jetta. its at random but sometimes when you turn the key to start it doesnt start it just turns over like its getting no gas. but some times if you give gas while starting it will start. now I done some self testing and sometimes when you turn the key to the #1 position all the lights turn on like normal but i dont hear the fuel spray and if i dont hear that it doesnt start. im confused and i dont like having this issue with my mother driving it every day. at least with the bug i can see everything going on with the jetta im left there scratching my head.

Thanks, cameron

The fuel pump is what you should hear . You may have a problem with the fuel pump relay . Clogged injectors should not keep it from starting just make it run poor . The relay should be #409 in the fuse panel . Do you have any codes ?
