Yep...youll need to get the timing set. anytime the head comes off,really on any vehicle,its a good idea to set the timing. also,make sure that you have all the plug wires connected in the correct order.

My 1993 Vw Golf won`t start, the battery is fine and the motor turns


So now you check the fuel delivery and ignition systems for the problem that is preventing your car from starting. Have spark? fuel getting to cylinder? ECM working? Camshaft sensor good?

Engine valve timing


This is a simple engine to work on. Check for compression in the dead cylinder. If low or none, you found your problem....likely burnt exhaust valve.
If compression good, check injector for fuel spay or fuel delivery head for fuel delivery. With engine idling, crack each line nut at the fuel distributor and see if any fuel squirts out.

If so, check spark delivery by pulling lead to dead cylinder and install used/spare spark plug into plug lead. lay this against engine and run engine watching for spark at plug tip. Do not touch the plug or wire while engine running.

If no spark, check distributor cap for cracks inside. The electronics are primative on these so the above should get you close to the reason cylinder is not firing.

1986 vw golf wont turn over


A head gasket is a gasket that sits between the engine block and cylinder head in an internal combustion engine. Its purpose is to seal the cylinders. It will still start but it won't run that well and you will damage your engine if you run it with it blown. so check your head gasket again.

Installed a brand new battery and new terminals, has very strong turn over but will not start. Spark plugs recently replaced, checked fuel pump- it works fine. Any idea what is wrong? Also, no dashboard...


there is a number of things that it could be (1) fuel delivery (2) spark (3) power you are saying that the dash is not working and the car wont start... try the simplest first sounds like some fuse problems maybe check to see if they are blown... if that doesn't do it check your fuel delivery you said that the fuel pump is working check to see if it is getting fuel to the motor if the car is fuel injected there should be a pressure valve on the fuel rail it should look like a valve stem press that in and fuel should spray out if that is OK then fuel shouldn't be a problem next check for spark take your spark plug wire off one of the plugs preferably the wire that goes to cylinder # 1 but any will do stick a screw driver in the wire where it connects to the plug and touch the metal to the head or anywhere close to ground it out to complete the circuit you should see it spark but don't worry this wont shock you unless you touch the metal part of the screwdriver this is process of elimination if you have all this in theory your car should fire up...

Car turns over but does not start. Battery good


If it over heated, could have bad head gasket's, fill radiator with water, crank engine with radiator cap off, if water is push out of radiator while cranking, bad head gaskets', also remove spark plug's, crank engine if any water, bad head gasket, also when spark plug's removed, check for any water on them.If there is any water on plug's, bad head gasket, also could try doing a cylinder compression test, if bad compression, head gasket, no compression, wont start that way.

There are devices in the Bosch CIS-E system not functioning that may need replaced. Most commonly it would be the thermo-time switch. This switch is also a sensor telling the ECU whether your engine is cold or hot so it would compensate fuel delivery depending on temperature. An auxiliary air regulator also opens (more air) or closes (less air) dependent from the thermo-time switch signals. It's basically telling the ECU when it's a cold morning to supply a richer air/fuel mixture or not to when it's at operating temperature. There is also a cold start valve (fifth fuel injector) that could be sticking or leaking or simply not supplying fuel during cold start up. Again, this has a higher level of understanding and special VW tools to diagnose your fuel injection problem that should be left to a VW tech to work on. It could be dangerous because fuel is involved, a single spark from static electricity could ruin your day.

Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter, it's also a good thing to clean the throttle body with throttle body cleaner. Auto Zone will have the fuel filter and can give you the step by step instructions for you to replace the fuel filter with common tools. You can also ask for the step by step instructions for replacing the fuel pump if you think it's the pump has gone bad too. Good luck

Well, there are some hundreds reasons why the engine can stop. Common ones are:
Dirty fuel filters, problems with electronic distribution, spark plugs to be changed, broken fuel pump, battery contact not in place, blown head gasket, rarely also a problem with anti-theft alarm motor lock can cause same thing.
Generally, if the car motor stopped immediately, with no additional symptoms is likely a problem with distribution ( no spark).
If you have experience in servicing your car you should start from checking if there is spark, and if petrol is being pumped regularly.
Best thing to do is always having it checked by a mechanic.
