      It would help to know more about your vehicle like the model and year. MK2 8V is not real descriptive. Several engines and injection systems were used over the MK2 years. Since your post has been...

      I'd actually suspect an electrical issue more than a fuel issue. Something like a spark plug, SP wire or distributor cap. You could try pulling the SP wires one at a time and see if the issue...

      LOL -- at least you have one of those after run switches. Usually the switch is neutered when the wire corrodes off. Sometimes the wire falls harmlessly into the manifold area. Other times it...

      The switch shown in the picture is in the wrong location. It should be located on a similar stud at the center rear of the of the cylinder head cover. The location shown will cause the switch not...

      You might want to try to check the starter solenoid or, if that is OK, replacing the electrical part of the ignition switch as mentioned in the previous post. It used to be that the solenoid could...

      The Air Flow Meter has a flap in it that may be stuck. You can check it by removing the meter from the airbox and moving the flap by hand. It should move smoothly and easily throughout its range. ...

      After thinking for a day, I probably should add that some MK1 Rabbits had a two part speedometer cable that passed through a small black box -- the egr counter box. Years ago I worked on a car or...

      I have to agree with Butcher. The speedometer and the odometer work via a cable from the transmission. Sometimes a cable can be bad internally and look good externally. The cables used to be...

      Just a couple of comments/thoughts.

      As for the engine. You might want to replace the cloth covered ends that connect vacuum lines. I have found a lot of leaks internal to those -- also take a...

      "Ground Point 94" is a connection point of several wires in the wiring harness. Terminal 1 (Brown and White Wire) from the Hall Generator, A Brown and White wire from the Coolant Temp Sensor, A...

      Seems like your issue started when you tried to move the distributor. You might want to check the coil to distributor wire. It might have broken internally. Also check to see that the wire is...

      It makes sense to replace the Blue ECU Temp sensor. That can be done for under $20 and you can switch them out without draining the coolant. The temp sensor is held in place in the front hose...

      Nice pictures.

      The distributor looks OK. It looks like the plug wires are installed properly. The timing mark on the distributor is a line cast into the distributor body edge. You have to...

      Probably M10X135 with an Allen head. Replaced one when I was in Arizona years ago. Went to the local dealer to get it. Today -- you might check with a local auto parts store or home center. A...

      IIRC I was turning onto the road that took me to the work parking lot -- let up on the pedal before the turn and the car kept on at the same speed. The higher speed turn scared the crap out of me. ...

      Yup --- I've experienced TB icing on a Digi 2 car here in northern Wisconsin under certain conditions of cold and humidity. The heat stove rusted off so I deleted the pre-heat hose. One day going...

      Get a Bentley Manual and run some tests. The air sensor resistance is easy to test with a multimeter. You have already done one of the tests -- check for smooth operation by moving the sensor flap....

      Once you decide if you want/need to rebuild the engine do an "in-car" rebuild. Pull the head and have it re-done or simply buy a rebuilt head. Drop the oil pan and remove the con-rod bearing covers...

      Looks like the pre-heat tube that supplies air heated by the exhaust manifold to the airbox. Nice to have if you live in a colder climate but I have seen a lot of cars run fine without them even...

      It wouldn't take much to check the timing and the compression. You don't say how many KM on it but the car is 31 years old. As we used to say in the '60's -- never trust any car over 30. A...
