    I will try and keep is short

    I have a 2.0 tdi 170 golf on a 2008 08 plate. The car was great until a week ago and now its a bugger to start. It will start first flick in the morning but if I stop after 15 mins driving and try restarting the car it fails to start.

    The car will turn over and over fast but won't start. It's allmost as though its run out of fuel or an imobiliser kicking in. Pumping the throttle does nothing nor does locking and unlocking the car.

    If I keep winding after a few attempts or about 30seconds it will start but it's annoying and embarrasing.

    The battery seems to have plenty of oats and it does not do it all of the time...

    Any ideas guy's..

    Not sure, but it maybe related to the known injector fault on the Audis...if you have a quick search on here, there was a recall from Audi.
