Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
I have a 98 VW Bug. It is having starting problems that seem to revolve around the gas cap being fiddled with. It cranks over just fine but when it does not fire up I have to go back to the gas cap and mess with it. Is there a sensor on the gas cap that could be faulty?
No there is not but the seal on the tank may be damaged.. also check that the breath line inter the tank to the top of the tank side has not been messed around with as this helps the fuel get to the engine. the seal on the tank should cover the neck of the tank to stop spills in the event off a crash. the breather line is opened and closed by the engine running. when some one is trying to steal fuel and they cannot get the cap off the get under and cut the breather pipe as you can suck out the fuel from there if you have a full tank.
