Hi, recently one of the pipes/hoses that is part of the suction jet pump has corroded and failed. The vehicle is an 1995 audi a6 2.8l v6 fwd, and ever since replacing this hose, the car won’t start but crank for ages. If the key gets turned to the ON position and then to the START position, it will just crank.However if one turns the key all the way to START immediately, the vehicle will start for 1 sec. and then die again.
any ideas?

  1. A broke SJP will cause a massive vacuum leak which could definitely cause the car to stall. Also lose break pressure since its directly connected to the vacuum in the break booster. Just connect a piece of vacuum line from the intake manifold to the brake booster and delete the SJP. Search AZ(Audizine) for a how-to on deleting the SJP if you discover the pump is cracked(very common)


  2. Thank you, will do so. I have a fair amount of knowledge when it comes to Audi’s but this is something i haven’t solved yet!
    Will keep you updated on how stuff goes 🙂

    Here’s a link to the suction jet assembly, thought might aswell include this!
