vw jetta tdi
I just bought a 2004 VW Jetta TDI. I got got it home and it ran great for about a week. Then for the last 3 days in a row after it sits for about 10 hours I try to start it and it seems to try to start but then seems like I pulled a fuel kill switch. I try to restart and after engin spins about 50 times and battery is about dead it starts, smokes a bit then runs like new. Does anyone have any ideas. Thanks roger
