Assuming that the engine can be turned over with the starter, the most likely culprit is it's not getting enough fuel, especially if it's been sitting for 6 months or more. AT YOUR OWN RISK, remove the air duct after the air cleaner and pour a shot-glass full OR LESS of gas directly into the carburetor or throttle body. It should start and at least run briefly. If it does, then add at least 3-5 gallons to the fuel tank. If you've run out of gas, then adding just one gallon is not enough. Today's fuel-injection systems have pressurized fuel lines which need at least a gallon just to fill all the pumps and filters between the tank and the engine. Good Luck, TechJoel

My 1972 Vw bug won't start anymore. It acts like

The basic process is to check for spark at the coil and the plugs, then check for gas in the carb. If you have spark, it should try to start with carb cleaner sprayed into the carb throat.
If it does, you then check for fuel pump pressure in the line between the pump and the carb.

I have a 1968 baja bug that doesnt exceed 50mph in 4th gear and i have the pedal floored I am stumped at this one and the engine doesnt sputter, but has a hard time getting up to 50 mph.

What gear ratio does it have? Especially a baja set up has low gears and won't do 50 - 60 no matter how hard you push it. That is most assuredly the problem.
