    1. 11-06-2005 07:22 PM #1
      got a 99 jetta4 tdi-starts great cold-long cranking when hot-putting
      foot into pedal seems to help when cranking-put a generic scanner
      on vehicle-no stored codes-new fuel filter on and good fuel
      anyone familiar with this 65k on engine

      doesn't sound like a check valve problem. maybe a fuel shutdown solenoid problem by the way you describe it. not real familiar with tdi but old indirect pumps had this problem sometimes when they sat for awhile and hotsoaked.
      I didn't do much today, but i'am going to give it hell tomorrow.
