Default Passat 1,9 tdi 1999. Problems.. Fuel?

Hi I have recently purchased myself a VW Passat 1.9 tdi,
110 BHP 1999th The car dies without warning,
sometimes after a few hundred meters and sometimes at 1 mil.
After it dies, it is hard to start but after a while (few minutes) then start again.
Then it will run as normal for a little while then it dies again.
Does anyone know what the problem might be? Can it be fuelrelated?
Grateful for all answers.

Check the fuel filter as a first and inexpensive start, it may be clogged up.

He also could have a lift pump going. Go where it is quiet and have someone turn on the key, but not start the car. You should be able to hear a whirr of something under the back seat area. If it failing it might not make any noise. But as Tony says, go fuel filter first. Don't buy any thing off the rack. Get a good quality one.

I have changed the fuelfilter, I noticed that it had punctured one of the fuel return hoses between the injectors. Could this be the reason for my problem?

This is the 110 hp engine, I dont think there is an diesel forepump? It is a dieselpump in the engine driven by a camshaft... Or I might be wrong.?

Iv change fuel filter, hoses to injectors. The car is still not working...

My local vw dealer told me to by relay 373 and 219. I belive it is the same typ of relay as "relay 109" on anouther cars?
