SOURCE: NO FUEL GOING TO ENGINE, BUT ENGINE WANTS TO TURN OVER

Hi

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.

Regards

Geordie

SOURCE: 2003 vw jetta tdi fuel filter

It is on the passenger side right behind the washer fluid fill tube. You can follow the fuel lines (look like 1/4" black tubes, some are clear) from the injector pump to it. It is a caniser a bit bigger than a normal looking oil filter and sits between the washer bottle and the metal that forms the wheel well. It is held in by a screw type clamp about half way down the cylinder. Probably isn't the fuel filter unless there is air in the lines to the injector pump or they didn't bother to fill the fuel filter up with diesel after putting it in. There is not a fuel pump in the tank in these cars so everything is sucked up by the injector pump and it needs to be primed properly.

SOURCE: runs but wont idle. smells to rich. other than that it runs fine

This sound like a vacuum leak... Look carefully for loose/cracked hoses and connections from the fuel distributor/air box to the throttle body and around the idle enrichment bypass hoses... and also the intake gasket itself. The reason it smells rich is that the injectors are firing more to compensate for the lean running condition. It you run it this way too long it will overheat and warp the head or **** a valve... Hope this helps...;-)

SOURCE: fuel filter location

its located outside and next to the fuel tank. There is no specified replacement interval, but 95k might be a good time to replace it. There is no need to replace the fuel pump unless it packs up, there is also no need to drop the tank to do this either, it can be accessed by removing the rear seat bench, underneath this will be a plastic access cover giving you access to the pump.
the filter is underneath the car right next to the tank.

Where is fuel pump relay on my vw rabbit


You didn't mention what engine you have. The location I am showing you in the picture below (Red arrow/relay 1) is the location for the 1.7 & 1.8 liter engine. If you have the turbo or the DSL engine, the location is different. Hope this helps....

1984 RABBIT GTI FUEL PUMP KICKS ON AND OFF


You had a missing relay before? To operate the pump you'd jump the perpendicular connections. As for the relay running briefly, that sounds like it could be a worn out ignition switch.

1984 volkswagon gti when driving when I turn right the car stalls and quits what makes this happen ? Ihave replaced fuel pump and given it a tune up.


Parts of the car are shifting and causing a loose connection to fail. Get it to fail, stop, and then check for poser at the fuel pump, at the ignition coil (fuel or spark).
