Hi Bobcal. The one thing i didn't see on your checklist that I would examine before I replaced the fuel pump is the fuel filter, I can't decided (because plugs and wires are on your list) if you've eliminated spark as an issue or not although the fact it fired when you sprayed gas into the air intake probably eliminates that as a concern. Anyway, try your local library to see if they have the Chilton's for your Passat. That may be the cheap and easy way for you to troubleshoot your fuel chain issues and find out the correct procedures for doing whatever repair work is needed. If you don't find it there you can try your local chain parts store and you may get a few minutes of reading time to get some tips. If you are going to own a 13 year old car and work on it to this extent however, a Chilton's or similar repair manual would be a smart investment. Good luck!

Hi Lou, although your info was good it ended up being the pump. As a general practice, it is not good to let your tank get to low on gas (meaning lower than the redline). It can cause the pump to go bad.. I am sure most of you know that, so just call me stupid.. .lol... thanks for your help ,, LouB
