    Golf Plus cutting out

    Hi,

    New member here. I've got a 2005 Golf Plus 1.9 TDI engine code BRU and it keeps cutting out when I get to a roundabout or junction when I ease off the accelerator. It's fine on tickover and when I'm motoring, no problem. When it cuts out, it won't start again.

    My garage has code read it and no faults found. The crank sensor is showing a reading, so they don't suspect the crank sensor. My garage has replaced the fuel filter, the fuel pump relay and fitted a new cambelt kit, because it was due and a new genuine cam sensor as well. They checked the fuel pump and it was intermittant, so they replaced it with a Bosch aftermarket one. They also fitted a second hand fuel tank, because the locking ring for the fuel pump was corroded and damaged. The tank was cleaned out before being re-fitted. The car has also been checked out with a diesel specialist and they have fitted new injector seals.

    It's been running ok for a couple of weeks and now the fault is back. It's happened on two occasions when approaching a speed bump and a roundabout when I ease off the accelerator when I was going home after work. It started up after three long engine starts and was ok again, and was ok the next morning when I was going back to work.

    Any ideas will be much appreciated. Thankyou.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Its nice to see you made an intro on your own.

    Which code reader did this garage use?

    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.

    Manufacturer: VW, Date(s) Used: 05/2005-02/2006, Model: Golf Plus, Engine Code: BRU, 66Kw, 90PS, 1.9 Ltr, 4 Cyls, Remarks: Turbocharged Direct Injection Pumpe Düse (TDI-PD) Timing belt
    2010 Golf GTD (170) CBBB, 5 Door, Shadow Blue (P6/D5Q), Transmission Code: KXZ, Flat Tyre Indicator, Basic Protection Pack + VCDS.

    Hi, My garage used a Snap-On Moddis Edge and the diesel specialist used a Bosch KTS.

    Snap-On Moddis Edge and Bosch KTS are generic scanners.

    That’s and odd one, your garage has done all it can but first I would make sure the fuel lines on the top of the tank are the right way around
