Attempting to purchase a Scirocco, but want to make sure I know why it isn't starting before I commit to owning a project car needs gremlins hunted down.
Car is an '81 Scirocco.. all stock to my knowledge.
Current owner has been driving the car for a couple of years as a daily, and said it stopped running at a traffic light a couple of weeks ago.
I got there, tested the big fuel pump -- it ran, but the leads only showed 7 volts while cranking the engine. The fuel pump didn't sound like it was priming, but I did hear it running for a half a second every time I stopped cranking the engine.
Car has spark while cranking. Distributor and rotor are intact.
Fuel reaches cold start valve, as well as the four fuel lines at the fuel dizzy. I didn't take the injectors out, as the car isn't mine, and didn't want to crack the rubber fittings without replacements on hand.
Fuel pump relay? I pulled the fuse out of it, and it was good.
