Question about Volkswagen GTI

1 Answer

I have a 2000 gti vr6 2.8l. i recently took my car out of winter storage, never had a problem before like this EVER! I went one morning to start my car and it just cranked and cranked no start. I again tried to start it later that day it turned over with some long cranking. when i let the car warm up the engine light stayed on and the EPC light also came on. My mistake i didnt leave the car on long enough to store the code i turned the car off and i am not able to start it eversince.I checked the fuel pressure it was good With some stupid advice from a friend i changed the coil pack no diiference. could this problem result within the emission system? WHAT DO I DO?

Are you getting a spark when you are cranking it? if not check the connection at the camshaft senor or the senor

This is because the spark plugs are fouled out have the spark plugs replaced and make sure they are winter plugs some cars have colder plugs for the summer which have a hard time in the winter.

2000 GTI 1.8 liter turbo #3 coil pack swap!

Took the information that I found on the internet and ran with it. Once I got the part I looked at the engine after taking off the plastic cover on top of the engine it was self explanatory. I took a chance on how the pstons were numbered and it was right. The car runs great!
