My wife drove our 2002 T5 yesterday, and it ran fine. This evening, we went to drive it and can't get it started. It turns over but sputters at best. I haven't even opened the hood yet, but I plan to do some troubleshooting tomorrow. <p><B>My question is....... Has anyone had this happen? From what I read, the ETM problem usually seems like a driving problem not a starting problem.</B><p>Thanks guys

ETM problems are not supposed to affect '02 or later Turbos. It only affected 99-01 turbos, and up to 02 normally aspirated.<p>Sorry, your problem is something else.

Re: UH OH, my engine won't start! (JRL)

my first thought was a crank position sensor, but if it fires at all, sputters, it would not likely be the cps.<p>get a code read on the car. and hope it is the etm as it would be covered.

Well, I've got an OBDII code reader, so I'm going to see if that will tell me anything. Then, I figure I better get some good gas to put in the car, as the tank is fairly low. Just doing this in case it is bad gas. Unlikely though as that will usually strike soon after you fill it. I'll see what I can find in VADIS and start troubleshooting. <p>Wish me luck<br>

My Canadian spec 2001 used to have have a problem when it was low on gas (<1 tick) and parked on an incline. It might sputter a bit but it just wouldn't start.<p>I would release the brakes and let it roll onto a level surface and only then I was able to start the engine.<p>It turned out to be a faulty pump design that was fixed in later model years.<p>

fkamthong had it right! It was parked a different way in our drive, and had over 1/8th of a tank of gas (the computer said it had about 200 miles to empty tank). Yesterday I went to the gas station first to get a can full just in case and Whaddya know? Fired right up. I've never seen a car that with starve itself for fuel at such a slight incline. People in San Francisco must really have to be aware of that. <p>Anyway, thanks for all the help, I feel kinda sheepish now after it just needed gas. Oh well, I'd rather have that than it be something serious.

In MY2002, the only S60s affected are non-turbos.

Funny thing is that the replacement pump had a crimped fuel line and I had to bring back the car within 24 hours after the engine shut off on my way home after work just 2 miles away from the dealer... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Frederic
