      So I received a free jetta (surprising right ) anyway things are going a little less than stellar

      Here what I have. Bone stock 1984 Jetta GLI 1.8 8v

      Car runs and drives but...

      NO FUEL FROM #2 Cylinder.

      Cracked the lines while running and got a noticeable miss and fuel leaking from all of them except the one for Cyl. 2 I have been trying to track down this miss for a while now and this is stating to get me quite angry. ANY IDEAS?!?

      Why is only that cylinder not getting fuel (nada no fuel from distributor)

      Can i save my existing CIS fuel distributor?

      please help (I have 4 other CIS systems that were included with my car but i am nowhere near that bold yet)

      remove the fuel lines at the fuel distributer. There is a tiny plastic screen in the dist. Remove & clean w/FI cleaner. If that doesn't work, you will need a new fuel distributor
