[Vwdiesel] trying to start after sitting.

Recently, with my problems starting the engine, I found out a new way to
fill the pump with fuel which I find very simple. You have to unscrew the
retainer of the return fuel line on the fuel pump, screw in an adapter with
a hose and suck until you get fuel on the return. You will be able to see
the fuel coming from the filter to the pump. Another hint: after you screw
the return line loosen the 17 mm nuts on the injector lines at the injector
end and crank the engine until fuel is coming out. Now if you have
compression and the plugs are working you can't go wrong.
