Question about 1999 Volkswagen Golf
My 1999 (T) Seat Ibiza GTi Cupra Sport 2.0 8v cut out on me, and wouldn't start again. Using a multi-meter I found that there was power going to the ignition coil but not coming out. I replaced the ignition coil and it started on the button. A little while later it cut out on me again and I could not restart it. With the multi-meter I found that there was now power coming out of the ignition coil and into the distributor cap but not going to the plugs. I replaced the distributor cap and rotor arm and then it started on the button, but again it cut out on me and will not start, with no spark at the plugs.
What can the fault be?
Is it worth changing the plugs and leads?
If it helps the engine code is AGG, which is the same as the VW Golf Mk3 GTi
It could be a dodgey distributor if you didnt get a brand new one or the hall sender has packed up it sounds like its sending to much voltage out and frying everything in its path is it earthed at the coil pack and all ?

To be honest with you, stop throwing parts at this car and have it diagnosed properly by a good technician.
