The car has a really bad cold start as if there is a vacuum leak but once it is warmed up it starts up fine all day

Expert:  chris replied 1 year ago.
with what you are describing you need a fuel pump, your pump is not giving the car enough fuel causing the lean condition at cruise, also the long crank because it is not holding residual fuel pressure

What psi should my fuel have
Expert:  chris replied 1 year ago.
2.5 bar at idle and it should increase to around 4 bar at cruise

I did a test on the fuel pump and I lose pressure but have great pressure when running. I looked into my fuel pump and its $600. do you know of any good websites to buy VW parts
Expert:  chris replied 1 year ago.
Unfortunately the fuel pump for this car is expensive even for aftermarket. This is the only year of Jetta that uses this fuel pump. It has the filter integrated into it. Your best bet is going to be to try to find it somewhere online. But it will be right around that price. But it will fix your issue
