I'm getting fuel to injectors or fuel injection box but it stops there doesn't go any further it is a 1990 VW Cabriolet any ideas? tks


VOLKSWAGENS THE 1990 MODELS HAS CIS - E FUEL INJECTION. THE FUEL INJECTORS CONTROLLED BY AIR FLOW SENSOR PLATE REST POSITION INCORRECT. INSPECT AIR FLOW SENSOR PLATE REST POSITION. LOW FUEL PRESURE FROM WEAK PUMP WILL CAUSE FUEL INJECTORS NOT TO WORK.

1985 VW Cabriolet cranks fine. Timing belt intact. Was running yesterday, then just stopped. Spark to distributor, no spark out. Replaced fuel pump relay, distributor, ICM, cap and rotor. What else...


That is very interesting.If you have spark to the distributor means that the coil and a CP sensor are OK.Than you have to check ignition leeds and a spar plugs.Did you put correct rotor and a distributor cup?Check compression of the cilynders

Im have a prob with getting my 1989 cabrio to start. It just quit on me on day. I changed the fuel pump, but still no luck. It turns over, just wont start.....need help!!


First, turn on the key, just to the run position.
try everything that should normally only work with the key on, headlights, turnsignals, horn etc.

the first three generations of vw had somewhat weak ignition switches, especially if the owner had a tonne of keys, keychains, teddy bears and **** dangling off their key ring.

if these thing do not work with the key in the on position, then you need an ignition switch.

if they do work you need to investigate further to find out if you have fuel delivery and\or correct fuel pressure and if you have spark

Ignition system sounds probable on vhicle when everything gets warmed up. High pitched hum could be bad tire or worse bearing.

1990 VW Cabriolet Gas Smell and humming from gas cap...The smell and sound happens more frequently on warm/hot days. Gas cap seal has been replaced, but still having problems.


The humming noise is coming from the fuel pump.  Its possible its getting ready to fail.  These start making noise when they are going bad.  The smell can be coming from bad gas cap not sealing up fuel tank properly and or a fuel pump/sending unit seal.  You can pull the back seat bottom out easy enough by removing 2 5mm alan screws that secure it to the floor.  Remove the seat bottom buy pulling out and remove black cover under seat bottom that has 3 philips screws.  you may smell fuel more promanently here.
