Replaced the timing belt on a 1990 VW Golf and now it won't start but it will turn over


Most likely the timing is way off. The engine will start when it is in time and when it is 180 degrees out of time. The timing marks on the cam and the crank will line up correctly once when it is #1 TDC and once when it is 180 degrees out of time. The problem happens when you have the Crank at #1 TDC as it should be and the cam is set incorrectly in most cases. If both valves on the head for the #1 are not closed with the intake open and the exhaust closed for the next cylinder in the firing order your cam is not set correctly even though the timing mark appears to be correct. If the previous timing belt broke while the engine was running odds are every valve will need to be replaced because they are bent. VW did not use a no contact engine in this year model which would have locked the valves in the closed position if the belt broke. If this in fact the case you can verify this by doing a compression check on the cylinders. If you have 0 compression on any cylinders you have bent valves. You can also attach an air compressor to a compression check hose and apply air pressure to each cylinder, if you don't get pressure in the cylinder the valves are either bent or not closing properly.

What is the timing on a 1987 volks. golf 1.8L?


6 Deg BTDC FIRING ORDER 1 - 3 - 4 - 2

Jul 12, 2009 | 1987 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

Car will not start


If I am right, the firing order is,1-3-4-2. With the dissy cap removed, have someone turn the engine over so you can see which way the rotor arm goes. Set the engine to TDC and the rotor arm should point to the No1 cylinder at the start of the firing order. If it rotor points away from the No 1 cylinder then slacken the dissy housing and move the diddy until the rotor ppoints to the No1 cylinder. Now pHT lead from the No1 spark plug to the No 1 possition on the dissy cap. The next lead goes on the next available possition on the dissy cap in the way of the rotation of the rotor then to the No3 spark plug carry on the same with 2 and 4 and that should solve your problem unless you have a different firing order.
