Question about 1984 Volkswagen Rabbit
1984 VW RABBIT CONVERTIBLE DELUXE HAS SAT FOR 3-4 YRS. AND I NEED HELP DIAGNOSING FUEL PUMP, FUEL RELAY, AND STARTING PROBLEMS.
Have you flushed out all of the old unleaded fuel from the system and fitted a new fuel filter? Unleaded fuel only lasts for a very short while before going off. You need to flush out the tank and the fuel lines and then put fresh fuel in the tank and fit a new fuel filter or you could be leading yourself on a wild goose chase.
Do you hear the fuel pump running for a second or two when you switch on the ignition? If not then you need to check the fuel pump positive terminal for battery voltage with a volt meter whilst someone switches on the ignition for you, and check the fuel pump negative terminal to ensure it is properly earthed.
If you have a live and an earth at the pump but the pump still isn't running then you need to renew the fuel pump.
If these suggestions don't solve your problem then I'll need to know what size engine is in the car before I advise you further.
