My 2002 VW Cabrio starts up, but won't stay running.

Asked by Jun 01, 2013 at 10:57 PM about the 2002 Volkswagen Cabrio 2 Dr GL Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have done a tune up, replaced the distributor and the coil but nothing has worked.  As a matter of fact it seemed to get worse after the coil was installed.  We have tested everything electrical and everything is getting spark.  It seems fuel related to me, but no one else seems to think so....any ideas would be appreciated.

if this thing's diaphragm cannot open, there will be insufficient pressure~

you could spoil yourself with silicone vacuum hoses~

did we get it BANG-ON? do I need to start looking towards your electrical schematic?....do you hear the fuel pump come on and start circulating fuel through the fuel rail (in the"on" position?)
