2.0tdi cuts out after start
got a problem with my brothers 56 plate A4 2.0 tdi 170 quattro avant, If he doesnt start it for a day or 2 then goes back to it, its starts up fine, runs for a 3 seconds and then dies......
Last time it took 14 times to get it running, if you apply any throttle it dies. Once running its perfectly fine?
I had a similar problem, changed fuel filter and all was fine again.
It may or may not be the problem but its a cheap start to diagnosis.
thanks for the advice, it has done 120,000 miles though and I'm not sure when it was last changed so that could be it, cheers
