Jetta 4-cyl

  • 41,075 miles
While driving on the interstate at approx 72 mph, the vehicle suddenly lurched, the indicator light for the glow plug came on, and then all power was lost as the engine stalled. I was able to safely maneuver through traffic to the emergency lane and stop. The vehicle would not restart. I had refueled the vehicle approx 168 miles earlier and had been running at highway speeds the entire time until the vehicle malfunction. I have a 2010 VW jettasportwagen tdi. Diagnostic tests run by the VW dealer two days later revealed that the high pressure fuel pump had disintegrated, sending metal debris into the fuel filter and throughout the fuel system. The vehicle had undergone a 40K service just three days prior by a VW dealer.

I'm was driving up hills with 38 mph notice that glow plug light flashing the car lost all power almost instantly. Fortunately I was able to managed the car to emergency lane. Lucky that I'm not on the freeway and I didn't have my 6 years old son with me at that time. This is a safety issue that we need to address to vwgoa so they can do a recall. You can find 100 or more same failures at www.tdiclub.com, some of the member had to replaced the hpfp twice. Dealer found hpfp failures. Metal found in the fuel pump due to hpfp self-destruction. Repaired and paid for by VW. Replaced the whole fuel system, tank, 3 fuel pumps, all lines and hoses.
