Asked by R&B Jun 30, 2020 at 11:21 AM about the 2005 Volkswagen Jetta GLS Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So when car is cold if you start the car and it spits and sputter's and wont
catch, you then turn ignition off and restart and catch's no problem, strange.
This only happens from a cold start never when car is warm. Ignition pak is
new as well as the plugs. Anyone any ideas ??

Could be a clogged fuel filter, defect in the fuel pump system, or a bad engine coolant temperature sensor.
