Question about 1988 Volkswagen Fox
My Fox has 168,000 plus miles. I recently started it, drove a short distance with no problem. It gradually developed a miss to the point that it stalled and won't start at all. I do have some vacuum lines which are not in good shape. I loosened the incoming fuel line at the distributor and the resulting spray showed good pressure. My next test will be a squirt of fuel into the intake and check the coil for good spark. Any other ideas from those with much more knowledge will be welcomed and appreciated. Larry..email@example.com. I'll try to find my way back here to pick up messages...
Well i was going to e-mail you but , your e-mail seems to be invalid ....i would go a head and replace the spark plug wires, insure there are no major vac. leaks, and if it has been sitting for some time , check the fuel tank make sure it doesn't smell like kerosene , if the fuel is old it will "gel-up" and get thick, ...if the fuel is old (hopefully there's not much in it) just fill it up with a higher octane to "thin it" back out.
if non of this works let me know.
oh...and don't forget to rate this thanks
