Default 2009 jetta-won't start sometimes

2009 jetta tdi 91000 km, wouldn't start when cold on 4 separate occasions, had to hold accelerator to the floor and crank engine over for at least 10-20 sec, once started the problem seemed to be gone until maybe 4 months later it appears again. dealer didn't know of any problems and since it never showed a check engine code is playing a wait and see attitude. i hate when things don't work perfectly!

Hi Richard,

Given your location, your Intercooler could have water/oil in it and under the right conditions could lead to a rough/no start.

You can read a lot more about it here:

I agree with DWalk. OP has 56K on the clock and other CR owners with ~40K are finding iced intercooler pipes.
