My car won't start

Asked by Feb 10, 2015 at 09:34 AM about the 1974 Volkswagen Super Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm trying to troubleshoot and get it
started rather quickly. It will turn over
just never catch so it's not the starter
itself I don't think. Could it be
anything other than spark plugs or no
gas?

check gas it might if it ran totally dry the fuel pump will drag the dirt in the bottom of the gas tank into the fuel filter and will make it hard to start
