pull the vacuum line from the regulator and turn the key on and see if gas drips or sprays out from the nipple on the regulator if so that's your problem the fuel is going threw the line into the intake port
I jjust did this so go to parts store after removing old fuel pump to show the counter salesperson. There are two bolts that hold fuel pump to the side of the block on front right side facing the truck. Remove gas line first from pump, the the 2 bolts that hold it to the block . repeat sequence on installation and put some(1/8 cup), gasoline down the carbuerator.then thry to start. repeat if truck fails to start. Or try using starting fluid in an aeresol can. just a few squirts should work. good luck Herb
1. Disconnect the Neg battery cable
2. Replace the fuel filter
3. trace the fuel line from the gas tank until you find the filter
4. remove the filter and make sure U replace it with a new and all the specs match(psi must meet vehicle standards)
5. installation is the reverse of these steps
6. purge the fuel system of air bubbles
7. start vehicle with a see thru plastic container loose fuel line from the carbuerator and drain into plastic container until you get a steady stream clamp off the hose and reattach to carbuerator
Sounds like one of the rubber hoses in the engine bay may be leaking. Could also be a leak somewhere around the carbuerator or fuel injectors.
Turn on the car and look/smell your engine bay. Look for anything that may indicate a leak or try and follow your nose. Leave running for awhle, and if you still can not find it, turn car off, and check all lines again.
Yes, that sounds like the problem. The filter is usually attached to the steel fuel lines with a short piece of rubber hose (not sure about vw though) which over time will dry up and split, allowing fuel to leak. I checked, and a replacement is about $30 (much more from the dealer) . If it uses the 2 short hoses, it will come with them, and hopefully that will be the cure. DON'T park car inside a garage until this is fixed, fumes will build up and can ignite in a closed area just by flipping on a wall light switch or starting the car.
Replace the fuel pump.If you live up North then in some cases where the air is real cold and nippy the fuel lines will actually leak flaky gas into the pump without it on to pump it to the carb, therefore corrosion and rust seize the Fuel Pump until it doesn't turn on when the key is in the 2nd position.
