My 99 TDI Golf has been having fuel injection problems. I ran out of fuel in the car last year, and re-primed all the lines. Everything worked fine for 2-3 months, but recently there have been occasions (this morning
) where it won't start. I have to use a vaccum tool to re-supply fuel to the pump b/c there's no fuel leaving the fuel filter. After I prime the fuel pump, I loosen one of the injectors and crank the engine until diesel starts spraying out at the injector. Then I tighten it up and everything works.
Question - what could be causing this failure? It's periodic, but incredibly annoying. I hope it's not a fuel pump problem.
