Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
With most fuel injected engines if it is flooding if you push the accelerator pedal to the floor and hold it there while cranking the ECM will lean out the fuel to compensate until it starts.
The is most likely an ignition system problem.
If you haven't already, I suggest that you take your vehicle to an auto parts store and ask an employee to use a scan tool to check for diagnostic trouble codes. Even if the check engine light is not lit there may be codes stored. Most auto parts stores offer this service for free. Any information obtained can help in determining the type of problem, and help in narrowing down the possibilities. Write down any codes, and fault descriptions for future reference. It is advisable to call your local store first to confirm that they are equipped to test your vehicle, and offer this free service.
