Question about 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit Pickup
I have run my VW diesels out of fuel and there are several ways that you can fix this.
1) fill the fuel tank and crank the engine until it starts. Do not crank for more than 20 seconds or so to prevent damage to the starter. You may need to run the glow plugs and crank the engine again if it does not start the first time.
2) pull start the car. Put the car in second gear and have someone tow you. Let out the clutch and turn on the key so that the glow plugs glow. This is also a good way to start your vehicle if it is cold out.
3)Fill the fuel filter with fuel (there is a screw on the top that can be removed and you can fill the fuel filter with fuel to help it start faster.
The 1.5 and 1.6 diesels are not very hard to get going after you run out of fuel.
