1997 Volkwagen Golf K2 Starting Problem in Winter

Hi,

I have a 1997 Volkwagen Golf K2 that has refused to start. The battery is okay and I have also tried boosting it with no success. The engine just keeps on cranking but there is no sign of running. There seems to be enough petrol in the tank. I live in Ottawa, Ontario and the temperature today is about -15 degrees centigrade. Although the car has started well when it was -20 up to -30 degrees centigrade. Any assistance will be much appreciated. Than k you, Everett.

Possible coolant temp sender or crank sensor,have you got fuel at the plugs and a spark,one quick check is to disconnect the temp sender this will then put it into a cold start fuelling....

1994 volkwagen golf, only starts when starter fluid sprayed into air intake. After starts runs fine. after warmed up, still doesn't start without fluid


Is this a diesel? If so it could be fuel filters because that is classic signs of a fuel filter needing changed.
