Question about 1988 Volkswagen Fox
The car was driven and parked 2 years ago. I t starts when i put gas in the cylinders. However it runs dry. there is no fuel going into the engine. Does this system need bleeding? How can i find out if the fuel pump is working. Etc etc any and all help will be much appreciated
Your volkswagen has an external fuel pump under the car near the tank... the filter shold also be mounted there... They are on a timer, they will actuate during engine cranking... Have someone crank the engine (as in trying to start it) and you should be able to hear the pump operate... if it doesn't , check for power with a test light... the polarity is typically marked on bosch pumps... if you have power, and no pump sound.... u need a pump. CIS injection systems turn to **** when they sit a long time, drain the tank (alot of german cars have drain plugs, or take the hose at the pump off and put fresh fuel in it...
