I have a 2001 VW Cabrio that has been sitting for about two weeks until I could get the radiator leak fixed. However, after fixing the leak, I am now not able to start the car. I had it running about a...


Need to know what engine you have.

2.0ltr Gas, TDi 1.9ltr Diesel or 1.8t. turbo gas.

Normally the Cabrio comes with a 1.8t.

If so , on this engine it is particularly difficult to diagnose a no start without a scanner hooked up the car. Most common catastrophic failure is the Timing Belt stripping it's teeth and loosing time, apart from the damaged it causes.

Other common problem with that engine flooded with fuel, a common problem if the engine was started and shut off without warming up..

Try throttle all the way open while you crank on it for about 20 seconds at a time. This will clear the gasoline from the cylinders and it may start.

2001 VW Cabrio engine sputters and kicks and feels like it loses so much power gong up a hill. Thanks for any help! Russell


Hi!!
Perform a tune up on the vehicle. If no improvement is noticed, check fuel pump pressure, Your VW is about due for a new fuel pump.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Look for a junkyard around that sells the window or buy one online for dirt cheap and then put it in yourself. It is not that hard just time consuming.
