Question about 1994 Volkswagen Jetta
My car won't start - no previous problems with starting. A garage got it started again and instead of fixing it right away i parked it for 7 months. I am planning on putting in a new starter motor in the next few days is there anything I should consider before doing this? Also, the engine seemed to have less power (that day). 1994Jetta 2.0 GL manual trans I just picked up a 94 jetta. After changing the oil all of a sudden now the car wont start. In fact it wont even click when you turn the key. I have power inside, and I tried jumping the battery but nothing.. The car is an automatic and there were no problems starting the car before this. There is a wiring issue I have noticed when I open the trunk the 4 way flashers turn on and wont go off until I start the car. Now the car wont start so I had to pull the fuse. Help!!
Hi, it sounds like an alarm system is going off (vehicle security). try to lock and unlock vehicle at drivers door and then start, or disconnect negative battery cable, turn key to on position, re-connect cable and start! do you have a remote for security system? battery fully charged? good luck, marty

ou should put some marvel mystery oil in each cylinder and turn the engine over by hand.. Of course you have to remove all the plugs first and leave them out until you get the engine ready. let sit for an hour and repeat the process. Make sure the water and oil are changed. after you have repeated the oil in the cylinders three times. You are ready to try and start the engine. check all wiring and battery for proper function. turn the engine over with the starter. Replace the spark plugs (recommend new ones) and then try to start the engine.
The best way to start any engine that has been sitting for any time longer than a year is to flush the old gas out. Gas that has been sitting for too long will go bad unless a gas preservative was added to it. Then change the oil and the oil filter. The coolant in the engine block, and the radiator should be flush out, and only clean water she be added without the thermostat. A lot of sediment from the iron in the block and from the radiator will build up and the coolant. This a also a good time to examine all rubber parts for cracks or leaks. It's would also a good time to change the spark plugs and wires. Examine the carburetor make sure its that it free of debris spider webs or any thing else. It would ofnot hurt to change the fuel filter pre-carburetor. All this with a fresh battery, and lots of luck you're good to go.
