    Two weeks ago, after an oil change and turbo clean the engine on my 1997 1.9 TDI ran away. :ohmy: It revved out of control for about 20 seconds and then the auxiliary belt snapped. The engine then gently died.

    Having replaced the belt and VAG COM'ed it I have not been able to get her to start.

    The engine turns over nicely on the key but will not fire. I have had all 4 injectors out, cleaned then and bled them, but still she won't fire.

    Has anybody ever experienced this and is there anything I can do.

    All help very much appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Get a compression check done on the cylinders. If you are low on compression then it probably won't fire
