having a bit of trouble with my jetta (2.0L gasoline - 5spd). Great car, but yesterday, I was coming home from work and it quit as I pulled off from a signal light. It will crank, but doesn't start. (Bad enough I had to push it out of the #1 lane off to the side of the street in DRESSY CLOTHES. Not a single guy offered to help push either. Grrrrr). :X
anyways, checked my fuses, changed the distributor cap, and rotor and fuel pump. I'm definitely getting spark to the plugs, but the AAA guy said he couldn't hear the "hum" from the old fuel pump. With the new pump, you can definitely hear the "hum", however the car has the same symptom - cranks but does not start.
no odor of gasoline at all. Could this be my fuel filter or the fuel pressure regulator? How do I know which one to replace?
or. Could this be something overlooked like the coil!
any immediate advice will be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
