Try depressing gas pedal halfway. If that helps it start, then check out the engine coolant temp sensor. If the sensor is off or corroded, the computer won't feed enuf gas.

Vw 1600 fox will not go into reverse

Reverse Sychronizer is worn. You need a transaxle rebuild.

01 silverado no start, fuel in oil, good spark, cranks opposite

you need to check your fuel pressure could be not enough or to much or your plugs are fouled are you sure the timming did not jump how many miles are on it?

My car is dead

it could be an ignition coil or many other things to diagnose the problem I would start by removing the oil cap have an assistant crank the engine while you watch the cams inside to make sure they are turning if not you most likely have a broken timming belt. if they do turn the next step is to scan the vehicle for touble codes. then follow down the diagnostic procedure for the opposing code or codes. The most likely cause is going to be one of three thing broken timming belt, bad camshaft position sensor, or faulty wiring not probabl but still a possability. hope this helps and good luck.
