2003 vw gti turns over but wont fire

Check to make sure you are getting fire. Do you have fuel pressure. There will be valve on the fuel rail (looks like an over sized tire valve) Turn the engine over a few times and push the center part of that valve on the fuel rail (stay clear) Fuel should spray out. If not its either a bad fuel relay or the fuel pump is bad. If you have both fuel and fire, Then do a compression test on all cylinders.If you have no compression, the timing belt may have broke. Hope this helps
