Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle
I AM WORKING ON A 2001 VW BEETLE WHICH HAS BEEN PARKED OTSIDE AND NOT STARTED IN 5 YEARS. I CHANGED THE OIL AND WATER AND CHARGED THE BATTERY. TRIED DRAING (SYPHON) OLD GAS WITHOUT MUCH LUCK. THEN ADDED NEW GAS WITH FUEL TREATMENT AND OCTANE BOOSTER. IT STARTS WITH STARTING FLUID (25+ TIMES) THEN DIES. I ALSO REPLACED FUEL FILTER.
Hi if its not been started for five years and it is trying to start but just won,t keep running get someone to tow you and jump start it because i suspect the compressions will be low due to a build up of damp carbon valves sticking all in all the seats on the head and valve will not be seating so if you persisist with the jump start it forces the valves onto the seats and will clear the debrie if it still won,t go check your compressions yates210456
