Probably the rpm sensor located in the side of engine block under motor mount in front of the starter where it reads the teeth on the flywheel..will cause the engine to turn over and not start or start and shut right off about $124.00 at dealer..

94 jetta gl have fuel but no spark


a voltage check doesnt tell you alot with a coil... check resistance on primary and secondary circuits of coil to test it... ignition module controls coil so if its ok id go after the module... see foriegn cars are no different they break down just as much, its just way more expensive...keep your head up...

96vw jeta won't start and i've changed both engine and trans mission computers and i stilll don't get any fire.


Have you checked for spark. Where did you get the coil? I have found that aftermarket coils do not work on these only the factory ones. I can't explain it. But I have one in my shop with a bad coil and got two from o'reilly and two from napa and both would do nothing. Got one from VW, car ran perfect. Checked the aftermarket coils and the resistance was different on the primary side of the coil.
