Not enough details. If you mean the motor won't turn over, my first guess is a bad alternator resulting in a dead battery. If it turns over but does not start, it could be the timing belt (the 2.0 base TT went from belt to a chain during the 09 MY). Hopefully, it is not this because it means that your car is totaled. The most common cause of quick onset sputtering is coil packs but usually coil pack failures generate CELs.

BTW, if I had an 08 or 09 with a timing belt, I'd get it and its associated parts replaced pronto. 10+ years on a piece of heavily used rubber is a long time. Why risk a $5K+ repair from a failure? How do you know if you have a belt? Read this FAQ https://forums.fourtitude.com/showth...-MK2-TT-a5-FAQ

I believe you're right. The timing belt sounds like it failed after 10 years, luckily I have a warranty that will cover internal engine parts and the belt itself... I'm sure it will be a pricey bill

I recently replaced the coil packs in the car less than 3000 miles ago with denso as well as the denso iridium spark plugs plus no check engine light came on so I figure it's an internal part.. I'll let you know what it is once the mechanic diagnosis it
