    Passat B6 Random engine cut off

    Hi I've had a problem with my 2007 Passat B6 1.9 TDI the car didn't ever let me down but one night the engine just randomly cut off and then trying to start it, didn't work and eventually started and cut off, the next day it was fine started and then midday cut off again, at this point i realized it cuts off when the engine has warmed up.

    At this point the engine management light is on throwing all random warning "engine garage" or something along that line.

    At this point the car has been taken to the garage and he's plugged the car in for any symptoms and its throwing all sorts of signs,
    At first fuel pump, then fuel injector 2, then fuel injector 3, days later the problems got worse car wasn't starting at all ect.

    At this point the mechanic was lost and almost gave up (so did i) but we called a electrician for the last time, he said after checking "ECU needs reprogramming or all your wiring has been damaged or burnt"

    So we went for the cheaper option the ECU and once programmed, it felt like the car didn't even have any problem at all.

    Just posting so people don't make the mistakes as me trying to fix every problem it throws at you.

    Would highly recommend ECU Express, sent my ecu box out and got a new one programed bag in less then a week.

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0, only what I've added from this post.

    You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.
