Question about 1984 Volkswagen Rabbit
It is either that the spark plugs are not firing or fuel is not getting to the cylinders. Cranking the engine while holding a disconnected spark plug boot near the plug to see if a spark jumps is one way to tell (I use an induction timing light (safer, since no wires are disconnected)). Removing a spark plug after cranking to see if it is soaked in fuel will help determine the other possiblity. There are several things that could cause either of these situations (bad spark plugs/ wires, distributor cap/ rotor, bad ignition coil, bad electronic ignition, bad fuel pump, clogged fuel filter/ injectors, no gasoline in tank). Narrowing it down would help.
