Question about 1984 Volkswagen Rabbit
Car has sat for a few years and had it started but running rough so i changed the plug wires and now wont start just cranks and back fires firing order seems rite from what i can find online
You must have the plug leads in the wrong place on the distributor.
Firing order is 1-3-4-2
Remove the distributor cap. There is a tiny mark on the aluminum body where the cap sits on it. Turn the motor clockwise by hand until the rotor lines up with this mark. #1 plug lead should be in the distributor cap hole closest to the rotor in a clockwise direction.
If the motor still does not start rotate all the plug leads 180 Deg.
