SOURCE: 1989 vw cabriolet fuel pump test is there a way

yes. Depending on where your fuel filter is located, you can disconnect the fuel line at the fuel filter and then try to crank the car over. If it spits fuel out of the disconnected line your pump is working, if not then it's bad. Another way to tell, but not always is when you car is started you hear a high pitched whining sound from the tanks. This is usually (again, not always) an indication of a fuel pump about to fail.

Hi

Have you checked the EGR valve, and or the air flow sensor? both could cause it not to start!

Also ensure the earth battery lead has a good connection to the car body from the battery.

Please get back to me if your unsure about these parts.

Regards
Dan

SOURCE: replacing ignition coil on a 2002 VW jetta 2.0 GLS

The secondary aux air pump needs to be removed in order to access the coil pack secured to the block. Remember the bolt for the coil needs to be torqued down to 7ft lb.

No fuel and no spark


fuel pump , fuel pump relay on fire wall, fuel filter, may all need replaced, pump in tank, inspect all wiring in this circuit, especially all grounds,, grounds get overlooked & that is sometimes the problem. I have a 1988 gmc 2500, I 'm talking from experience. can you hear if fuel pump runs for 2 seconds, when you turn key on ? if not, ground problem or pump problem. relay has a fuse in it, check that. check all fuses. NOW, spark ! coil ? plug wires ? distributor cap & rotor ? replace them if you haven't !!!!!!!!!! get to work, see how you do ! good luck !

1988 VW FOX no power to fuel pump and fuel pump relay


The problem is most likely the ground that would explain the gauge not working and the pump not working you can run a wire from the metal frame or metal body to the metal sending unit on top of the tank and see if the gauge works first.

Cranks but wont start


you need to check for spark at the plugs while cranking.then check for fuel entering the intake at the injectors.you don`t say if its a 4 or 6 cylinder.if its a 4 cylinder you can look into the throttle body while someone cranks the motor and you should see fuel squirting into the intake.if you have no spark then check to make sure the cap and rotor is in good condition and the rotor is turning(if not then the timing belt maybe broken and needs replacing.also check the plugs as if they are worn so bad you won`t get any spark.a common problem on these is the coil pickup in the distributor going bad.there is a 2 wire connector that comes out of the distributor with a plug,if you follow this wire back into the distributor you will see the pickup.also check and see if you can hear the fuel pump running while cranking,you may have a bad fuel pump.you may have to remove the gas cap and listen at the filler neck or listen under the car were the gas tank is.if the fuel pump is not running then you can hit the fuel tank in the middle while someone cranks the motor and it might start.if so then the fuel pump is no good another common problem.there is a fuel pump relay under the hood on the drivers side that sometimes goes bad or there is bad connections.most of this checking is good for the 6 cylinder as well except you can see the fuel squirting into the intake.it could also be a bad computer that will have to be checked out at a shop.

try to check your second fuel pump condition-delivery,but start with checking your fuel pumps relays

On some models, the Engine Control unit has a power supply relay. These relays some times get internal dry solder points. After driving for some time the the solder will get hot and separate. When it cools down it makes contact again. You will have to replace this relay or open it up and re- solder the solder joints. The relay is usually located on the main relay station in position 3. the relay station is located behind the right dash panel.[right hand drive vehicles]. You may need to refer to a manual for your specific model to find the exact location of the relay.

Engine cranks over and starts, but won't stay running or idle


If it is a fuel issue. Heres a suggestion. If you have an electric fuel pump your ignition switch may not be sending power to the relay in the run position but does in the start position. Also if its fuel injected you may be having a problem with fuel pressure, or a relay problem. Last, get a second person to help you by puting their hand by the exhaust pipe and see how much is coming out. Your description also may indicate a plugged Converter backing up exhaust into the engine making it quit running. Hope this helps...
