I am having a terrible issue of, after work i go to my car, and it will crank perfectly fine, gas is going to to the engine and everything BUT its not starting. for some reason its not sparking.

Asked by Aug 25, 2016 at 12:15 PM about the 2011 Volkswagen Jetta Base

Question type: General

Now this normally has happened after a long day of sitting in the parking lot of my work and and it had been hot and it only happened when summer started. I bought it preowned. I am wondering because all the mechanics inside the cab show its working fine. its only not sparking up but after I spark it up after the numerous hours of sitting at work the rest of the day it will run perfectly fine. dealership of course "couldn't replicate the scenario" so they just gave me the car back.

You need to check the fuel pressure after it has been sitting in the sun a while, it sounds as if you are vapor locked....

How would I do that? And it's just not sparking yo the fuel it pumping and everything it's just not sparking the engine to start
