Question about 1988 Volkswagen Jetta
My 88 jetta seems to be having problems starting in the morning
(usually no problem any other time), this morning I woke up late and
was frantically trying to get it started since I was already late and
pumped the gas pedal to help get it going. It started up eventually,
but then I had no pressure in the gas pedal.
The car does back up and drive slowly forward when in reverse or first just by letting up on the clutch, but no response from the gas pedal, so I can't really drive anywhere.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If this car has a carb, the most common problem is the auto choke mechanism get siezed/ gummed up. Remove tha carb plenum in the morning before starting. Depress the accelerator pedal and check that the flap on top of the carb has closed.
