I'm trying to help a friend get her car running again, and my knowledge is aircooled VW's so bear with me.
It died while she was going to get gas, got fuel into it, still wont start, battery was low so her mom bought her a new battery. Still wont start. I towed it to her place and we went through the fuel system. Pump, filter and the connection I found to the fuel rail seem ok.
My hubby tested the plugs and found no spark and very worn plugs so I changed out the plugs, cap, rotor and wires for her. Still nothing. And hubby's tests still show no spark. (I'm chicken to do the screwdriver in the wire test). The fuses are fine, the relays that I can see seem to be fine. The battery and starter are strong. I'm not used to cars I can't push-start and I"m sure this thing has some weird interlock do-dad that we might have pissed off. I'm just trying to help her get it running for work Sunday, since she only works a few days a mo nth and is struggling to not have to move back home again.
have the same problem?
