    Is there an error message (or code) displayed (either when you visit or in VMT)? Were you redirecting it to Feedburner (either via a plugin, or a manual change you made)?

    You could use FeedBurner for your feeds, you're unlikely to get crawl errors then.

    Yup. Yahoo Pipes is another option.

    Are you using a cache plugin? Even if it's disabled, the caching could still be in place if it's implemented via .htaccess.

    Were you redirecting it to Feedburner (either via a plugin, or a manual change you made)?

    EDIT: If the feed is broken, Feedburner (or other service) won't help.

    Did you try clearing the cache before disabling the plugin?

    EDIT: Did you make any changes to your permalink structure? I take it the urls are being successfully rewritten and not failing also? I assuming you're not using ?p=46, etc, as your URLs.

    What happens when you click CTRL+F5 on the feed page?

    Quick Cache shouldn't be the problem, I used it on my sites and it's probably the most unobtrusive cache plugin out there.

    CTRL + F5 will just refresh the browser cache. The problem could be the server-based cache and Quick Cache could cause the issue, especially if it modifies .htaccess (it at least relies upon it for gzip) to do the caching (this would mean that even if the module is disabled, the caching could still happen if the rules are left in .htaccess).

    Without access to you .htaccess, Wordpress install or server logs, it's not simple to diagnose, JakoJJ. Several things could cause a fail. It could be as simple as saving the permalink settings again. (I'm not saying that would fix it, but something at this level has gone wrong.)
