Tell you mate that by running the tank dry he has just cost you a new fuel pump. The pump has a set of plastic gears that move the fuel and produce the pressure but when these gears are run with out fuel to cool and lubricate them they generally melt . The pump is not cheap so check out a VW wreckers for a good pump

SOURCE: '96 VW Golf GL with 2.0 motor. Cold start knock

It sounds like the hydraulic lifters are bleeding down after sitting for a while... there are ball checks which are supposed to prevent this... Try using a good engine flush (a product that frees sticky lifters) and replace the oil with a good synthetic... Hope this helps...;-)

SOURCE: 1988 Jeep Wrangler wont start.

Try your camshaft possition sensor. If it is the same as my problem I just had to replace that and it started right up. Oh and mine was built into the distributer assembly. Take off cap and pin it's the plastic thing at the bottom. Should just pop out and you have to go to the dealer to get the part. Hopefully this helps!

SOURCE: VW Golf MK3 wont start

fuel relay could be faulty. i think its number 30 or 167 in the fuse box under the driver side steering. it could also be the fuel pump or connector on the fuel pump under the black metal plate under your trunk carpet. you could try manually throwing in fuel into the intake to make sure its not your car's ecu or ignition system. if it starts and stays running it could be what took me a few months to discover after i had intermittent problems. there a small vacuum hose from the fifth injector on a 1997 mk3 gti (4 cylinder) that connects to the injector rail. i think its some kind of activation for the electronic injectors. my pipe was broken and i just cut it and my car hasnt been better since! i know this is an old question but i hope it helps someone out there!

1998 VW Passat cranks won't start. fuel pump works,fuel up to fuel rail, spark plugs do fire


Improper fuel/air mixture, possibly plugged up air filter?
You have 2 out of 3 of the needed components for that motor to run, and assuming your timing is correct and you have compression, it could be an air intake issue.

Seems like a fuel pressure issue or a spark missfire, check the fuel pump and filter, also check the spark plugs and leads to make sure everything is ok. also could be an injector issue.

Im thinking about buying a 1997 vw golf gl, guys says he's replaced the clutch once and still has problems, also he says the car wont start without fixing the clutch first. could it also be an el


I have no idea why your even asking any questions
about that VW

Replaced the clutch & still has problems---so you want to
buy someone elses problems?


Car won't start-- so you can part with your money & get
a car that you can't even start?


Could be electrical or something?


Your going off what the owner said---Ya & why is he
selling it--because he can't afford to or figure out how to
keep it going?


I know money may be an issue but you don't buy a 16 year
old car regardless of condition ,not even if it was free ,I wouldn't
take it.


Do you know anything about VW's or have a college degree
in automotive technology?

Probably the starter needs to be replaced. If it was the battery, you would have more problems cold than hot.

1. Try to start? - Fuel issue, or battery issue?
