Alright quick heads-up. 77 CIS Rabbit w/ 1.8 GTI motor. Car ran outta gas last week, sputtered and died on the side of the road (gas gauge isnt working at the moment) Put gas in fired right up and drove home.
On the way it hiccuped a couple of times pretty good like it hit the rev limiter. Today I threw a new air filter in, and injector O-rings. Airbox is seated correctly and O-rings push in and stay in (a bit loose but they dont pop out)
It'll have a hot start issue every once in awhile. I fired it right up after the o-rings and went off on a drive, about 1 mile it it started sputtering and died out. Feels like its running on 1/2 cylinder. It barely idles and backfires bad. I give it any amount of gas and it wont idle above maybe 500rpm.
Check all the vacuum lines all looks good there.
I have a fuel accumulator on order as well as a new fuel filter.
Any help or direction?
