It has to be "phosphate free", and should say so on the label. It may come in a few different colors, but probably not green.

SOURCE: My 97 vw jetta won't start when it rains

I would check your spark plug wires, when it's been dry out, start the car and with a spray bottle, spray the plug wires and see if there is any difference, also the coil wire. The smell is most likely from the catalytic converter. Any check engine light?

2001 vw cabrio starts then dies immediately. will not stay running and you can smell gas -- seems to be flooding


Often, when a vehicle starts and dies immediately, there is a problem with the security system. It could be a key fob with a bad battery or a system that has lost communication with the rest of the vehicle. Try using a different key to start the vehicle. If this does not work, try scanning the vehicles computer to find any fault codes. Security system issues often have to be repaired by a dealer or a shop with qualified equipment. If you smell fuel when the vehicle starts and then dies, flooding would not be the problem, but rather a lack of fuel. Look for puddles of fuel under the vehicle and make sure there are no loose connections or bad lines.

Need to know what engine you have.

2.0ltr Gas, TDi 1.9ltr Diesel or 1.8t. turbo gas.

Normally the Cabrio comes with a 1.8t.

If so , on this engine it is particularly difficult to diagnose a no start without a scanner hooked up the car. Most common catastrophic failure is the Timing Belt stripping it's teeth and loosing time, apart from the damaged it causes.

Other common problem with that engine flooded with fuel, a common problem if the engine was started and shut off without warming up..

Try throttle all the way open while you crank on it for about 20 seconds at a time. This will clear the gasoline from the cylinders and it may start.

try smacking the gas tank before you start it. give it a few good hits with a rock or a hammer but don't break it. i had a nissan quest that had the fuel pump going bad and allowed the fuel lines inside the pump to freeze. if that helps then you have to replace your fuel pump
