Question about 1995 Volkswagen Jetta
I have resently purchesed a 95 jetta gl five speed that had a blown head gasket. the head was warped so i shaved it down (properley) and put a complete gasket kit back in to it. when i had it back to gether it would start but it idles low and when you hit the gas it stalls, then it will not start again four several hours. At first i thought it was the fuel pressure regulater, i got a new one and still the same problem. it has spark, fuel and compression. i think that it could possibly be the timing but im almost positive that i timed it correctly. any ideas?
What Wheelercolts says is exellent, in addition to all he says, take the ignition cap of, and when all marks are on the dot, look at the rotor. It has to be aligned with a mark that's on the body of the distribuitor.

I have seen timing issues with the 95 jetta when your crank and cam marks are off a tooth, when you reset this it will not start. Remove the harmonic balancer and the lower crank sprocket, look for the sheer pin to be missing. replace lower sprocket if sheer pin gone. when set your crank and cam marks and put timing belt on. Tip, there is a timing plug on the top of the bell housing near block, usually green, remove plug . look for mark on flywheel and on tranny. if all three line up your timed correctly. good luck.
