Engine Performance problem
1981 Volkswagen Truck 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual
I have a 1981 VW pickup. I am unable to start the vehicle. The key will turn over as if it will start - but a noise (whining motor noise) will start and that will enable it to completely turn over. The noise will not stop until I remover the battery cable - or until the battery runs out of juice. I'm not sure if it is the starter, alternator, coil? I am not a mechanic by any means. But I want my little VW running again. Even with the key out of the ignition, the noise will continue. It seems to be coming from just under/next to the battery.
