Well it can majorly mess things up
If you put diesel in a gas engine it will die allmost imediately.

if you put gas in a diesel engine, a little wont hurt, but if you filled up, then it could damgae the engine horribly.

If you simply put in the wrong grade ie. 87 octane instead of 93, then dont worry it wont hurt a thing.

My VW 1.4 automatic polo is not changing gears. its just stuck in gear 1 and consumes a lot of fuel.


If the engine light is blinking you have major issues with the vehicle. Have scanned at autozone or similar for codes this will give you a idea what is wrong. Then get back to me when you have codes

Setting timing marks


no start is a whole other matter. (double posted)
my guess (???) you put i a new cam belt to this DOHC engine?
1: new belt
2: timed it right.
3: turn engine by hand , to feel the valves not hit piston tops.? spark plugs out.
4: did a 4 cyl, leak down test with the guage. to see if valve are ALREADY bent, this step saves making them worse. if already damaged, or if the cam is wrong now.
(bravery starts here)
5: you crank it over, and checked for spark, ok got spark x4 and is timed right, (will be wrong, if cam is wrong, for sure, big hint here.)
6: got spark ?, good compression?, and now we try test fuel.
I spray test fuel into the plenum (if not flooding already)
yes, runs for 3 seconds, (good engine is good, but no fueling)
no, engine is bad. spark is timed wrong, or cam timed wrong.

just 6 steps.... if you do them you can save this motor. or at the least
prevent cascade damage.

the goal here is to get it to run on test fuel, , we can fix fueling issues
now.. as the engine is good. a major goal of many.

What causes a backfire


Gases in the engine exploding at the wrong time, Ignition timing set wrong, misfire putting un-burnt fuel into the exhaust system, then ignited by hot gases. Most common fault, is an ignition cross fire, where a spark plug is fired at the wrong time, happened mostly with high tension plug leads breaking down in damp conditions and shorting across each other, causing the plug to ignite gases in the cylinder at the wrong time when a engine valve is open.

Engine running rich


The only thing I could think of to make it run rich is if the pump is wrong for the car, or something happened to the return line to the tank. The pressure regulator should maintain pressure, and the injectors should be functioning as before you changed the pump.
Is the check engine light on, and is the fuel pressure normal ?

Engine dies for no apparent reason after several hours running


Sonds like a sensor putting out an error code to shut it down ( like a fatal error code) Prolonged vibrations and heat can make cam sensors, maf, o2 senosr do craz ythings which will actuate a govener and stall your car...could also be you fuel pump causually telling you that "hey im bout to die".I dealership can run a stress test (if you will) to check the longivity of the pump...
Good luck hope this helps :)
