Default Fs 2002 gls tdi

phone number was wrong and has been fixed

A friend who repairs VW's (gassers) picked up this running car at a dealership. He started driving it back and it stopped running. No run-away, no blown head, good compression, everything "looks" OK but it won't start and run.
The car is black, has cloth interior, sunroof, automatic trans., snow tires with 146,000 miles. The dealer paid $5000, but seeing as it's not running and just sitting at my friends shop in Auburn Maine I expect they'd take less.
If anyone's interested call Tabor at Rennen Performance, (207) 878-9088.
OBTW I DO NOT take any responsibility what so ever for anything to do with this car. I'm just passing the info along to fellow TDIers. I was hoping for a free oil change or something, but that's not even looking very good

sounds like a low fuel issue. unplug the coolant temp sensor, to see if you can get more fuel. also try to adjust the pump pully to start injection earlier.

Hey thanks, I'll pass the tip along and see if that does the trick. In the meantime however it's sitting there.

They said <$5K. Give Tabor a call, I'm sure they'll be happy to get it off the lot.
