      check the head

      4 caps = hydro

      5 caps = solid

      help please.
      i purchased a 90 cabriolet back in november. at the time it was running fine but needed a new tranny. i was able to drive it up onto the dolly though when i bought it. it sat over the winter and in the spring i did the tranny swap plus some other upgrades to the brakes and suspension. nothing though to the engine. now i can't get it to run. it tries to fire but it isn't getting any fuel. the pump is working fine. i disconnected the fuel line to the rail and had a friend hit the key and gas squirted out so that's fine. i've got good spark to all the plugs but it appears that the electric fuel injectors aren't working. any ideas on what could be causing them not to receive a signal? i'd appreciate any help. m_shea@hotmail.com
      thanks
      mike

      Gas mileage on the 1.8L 8v GTI's? Looking to pick one up, currently have a 2000 lexus es300 that gets round 20mpg :-( such a hog. Might consider turboing a 8v my buddy has. Thanks for your help and hopefully I become a Vdubber soon enough!

      I'm looking for a 1.8 8v timing belt procedure for a 89 Golf 1.8 auto. First link in this FAQ doesn't work and I didn't do well searching.

      I found an excellent procedure for the 2.0 here but now I need a 1.8.

      Recommendations/links please.

      Thanks,

      Dave

      Thanks for the response.

      In the meantime I had found this link in another thread that was helpful:

      I'm almost done. Just borrowed the tensioner tool to complete the job.

      If you are going to stick with the JH head (or any counterflow head with CIS) then you won't have to do any extra wiring. The fuel injectors, intake manifold, and related plumbing will stay the same if you swap a 2.0L block underneath.

      However, if you are looking to use the 2.0L block with it's crossflow head, then there will be several modifications necessary. Most people that continue to use the CIS injection do not use the crossflow head, due to the amount of modifications needed. In the end, it's a lot of work for virtually no gain.
