1.4TDI Fuel issues

Post by TorqueyVw » Fri Dec 29, 2017 1:21 am

Hi guys,

To sum up the problem, my 2002 1.4 TDI with 116k on the clock has completely died on me. It has been constantly shutting itself off after I start the engine or even driving around the city.

I have recently changed the Coolant/expansion tank,
The thermostat, Fuse 109 relay, full service including fuel filter and nothing seems to be tackling the issue. I have always replaced parts with genuine parts apart from Mann filters for the servicing.

I am certain there is an issue with the fuel side of the car as a couple of months back i noticed a really bad burnt diesel smell coming from the engine bay and out of the bonnet whilst driving in slow traffic. The car is a banger in everyone's eyes but for me certainly a treasure and really reliable car till recently on my last post.

Please tell me all your suggestions and how I could finally get it back on the road. Thanks to you all.

Getting There!

Crank/cam shaft sensor?

Try getting it hooked up to a fault code reader to see if something comes up on the ecu.
