04 V6 won't stay running
Been scouring the pages but couldn't find an answer to my problem.
I have an 04 V6 Touareg with 103k miles. I bought it a few weeks ago with mild front end damage. Ran and drove perfect. No CEL. Core support was cracked so I ordered a new one. Pulled the old one out and reassembled the front end. Now it won't stay running. Turn the key and it fires right up then promptly dies. If I flog the gas peddle is will stay running but barely. If I hold the gas peddle down at a steady point it just dies slowly. Here is where it gets annoying. I still have no check engine light. I tried running VCDS and it freezes when it gets to the point of scanning the engine. I have a 1/4 tank of gas. When I had the front end off my wife left the car open and radio on nearly killing the battery but I did put it back on the charger before it was totally dead and battery is currently charged
