Question about 1999 Volkswagen New Jetta
The car was starting and runing befor i preasure washed the motor and now it wont fire over it is getting gas it acts lick there is no spark
You must have the plug leads in the wrong place on the distributor.
Firing order is 1-3-4-2
Remove the distributor cap. There is a tiny mark on the aluminum body where the cap sits on it. Turn the motor clockwise by hand until the rotor lines up with this mark. #1 plug lead should be in the distributor cap hole closest to the rotor in a clockwise direction.
If the motor still does not start rotate all the plug leads 180 Deg.

Hate to do this hard way but assuming you have no test equip. Pull the starter and have the Auto Parts Store check it out on the bench tester for free.
