Question about 1986 Volkswagen Cabriolet

1 Answer

Fuel injected to Carburated

Ok, so I bought a 1986 VW Cabriolet. The car came in 4 coffee cans. I have everything back together, but now I know it needs pretty much everything with the fuel system replaced as it is gummed up very badly! Does anyone know how, or what parts I will need to make the vehicle carburated instead of EFI.?? Any suggestions helpful. Or if you know places to buy both fuel pumps cheaply, that'd be good too..

You have a fuel injection problem, sometimes to much fuel, thats why the smoke !Could be a sensor!! The best thing is to convert to a Carburated version, the fuel injection system is exspensive to repair.

87 VW Cabriolet starting problems


I would start with a fuel line psi test. then have your fuel acumulator.

check this out and see if it helps. It sounds like you are priming the psi up when cranking then it can go. but when you let it sit the pressure drops and has to build up again. I a not a VW person myself but love tinkering, so let me know how it goes.
