Could you tell me what the fuel pump pressure should be on a 1998 vw beetle?

I can hear the pump running and a bubbling back sound in the tank.
The fuel Pressure for your Beetle. with 2.0 L.
Is 36 Psi. engine idling.
43 to 55 engine off.
If you Spray fuel in the throttly. and keep running.
But if Only start and die.
Check the factory alarm.
Check if you have the right KEY.
The KEY on this car use a CHP inside. to prevent the car to be start with out the right key.
If the key is BLACK and look like use chip.
Check the Red LIGHT on the driver door or cluster , if the light is Flashing the SYSTEM is activated try to desactivate with the KEY on the DRIVER door lock Cylinder. if the light goes off
Try to start the car.
If your car is not equipated with CHIP. see if the light is ON or OFF.
Ok. I hope this help to diagnostic your car.....
