Question about 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco
Has new cap,rotor,is getting fuel it just truns over and over again i changed the oil because it was full of gas and still wont start it is getting spark and in the right firering order.
I have an 87 fox that won't start. Got good spark, so it must be fuel. The car wants to start but no fuel. I understand that a 87 Fox has 2 fuel pumps. One for the top of the tank and one for the bottom. I know the bottom one died years ago but now I believe the top one has gone. Where can I find it on the car and how can I check. Or do you think it may be something else?

Bad news I am afraid. The oil in your gas is a sign that your piston rings are shot thus letting gas flow down your cylinder walls past the pistons and into your crankcase. There are 3 things that need to occur for your engine to fire- gas and fuel mix, spark needs to be present and you need to compress the air/ fuel mixture. Unfortunately, if it is as bad as you say, then you are getting no compression from your pistons and the air/ fuel mixture is not igniting thus preventing your engine from starting.
