2003 Volkswagen Passat 1.8L turbo charged. It's cranking but not starting.
I've replaced one coil pack that was
broken,replaced all spark plugs,replaced the
crank sensor, repaired two broken vacuum
teas. Checked fuel pressure that's good. Still
cranks but won't start?????? I'm not shore
about the trim GL????
does the car cough and try to start ? or does it just keep cranking with out a hicup?
Perform a compression test. Could be a broken timing belt.
I can see the timing belt from the top, it is moving around when the car is being cranked.
The car just cranks and doesn't try to start at all. I've replaced the crank sensor,cam sensor,all the spark plugs, and all the coil packs. It's getting fuel and I just check the fire on the engine and it's getting fire too. I'm afraid it's in the timing but I hope not. UGH!!!!
I took the valve cover off to check the time. Found water in the oil. Wasn't showing on dipstick at first but is now. Possible blown head gasket????
water in the oil would most likely indicate a headseal blown or a crack in the engine block. But it could also be from sitting around. check your radiator fluid for oil or low to confirm.
