First, the car stats:
1989 Jetta n/a diesel unknown miles.
I bought this car in early February in Nashville, TN and drove it 1,000 miles home to Houston, TX. Averaged 30mpg, had a fuel and exhaust leak, odometer wasn't working, shift bushing was non-existant, so I took it to an area mechanic to get these items taken care of.
Let me re-phrase: I took it to the world's worst mechanic.
6 weeks later, I have to pick this car up on a trailer because he can't get it to start. My IP is in the trunk in a bag.
He also couldn't tell me with any certainty where any of the important settings were before he took it off, ie. idle screw, full throttle screw, etc. I put the pump back together from various how-to's off the internet, but this is the first pump I have ever been into, and now there is absolutely no fuel being pumped to the injectors. I have filled the filter, primed the pump to the return line, and still nothing at the injectors. I have, in a fit of desperation, taken the plunger out of the stop solenoid and cracked the injection lines at the pump, and still nothing. The pump is doing nothing. Is there anything else I can do, or am I looking at taking the pump back off and sending it to a shop?
Thanks ahead of time for any help.
