Question about 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet
I just bought a 1985 vw cabriolet and i was told that it had been sitting up for about six months. well here's my problem, it'll turn over and crank for a sec then it shuts off. i can get it to crank up and idle real good as long as i spray gas into the intake, but soon as you stop spraying it shuts off. i can't figure out what the problem is because i can hear the fuel pump cut on. if anybody out there has any suggestions i would greatly appreciate it.
It sounds like either the primary or secondry fuelpumps, take of the fuel line in the engine bay get some one to turn over the engine if no fuel is being squirted out of the pipe then its one of the pumps, check the pumps fuses and relays first, or could simply do with a drain and a good flush.
