shocking, a VW refusing to start!
alright, here's the story. i turn the key, it sounds like it's starting, turns over and everything, basically starts up... but i let go of the key and it shakes and dies.
i checked to make sure all the wires were snug, it's got a quarter tank of gas, no fluids leaking, everything seems to check out. so i tried pumping the gas a little, but it won't rev or anything. slew of new parts in the past couple weeks, starter, plugs, wires, cap, rotor.
it HAS been raining on and off all morning... but it's been raining a lot lately and i haven't had any problems starting it, just the typical sputtering and hiccuping he's been doing for a little while. my fox used to give me trouble in the rain, but i could always START it, and it wouldn't stall unless i hit the gas... the golf just won't hold an idle.
any insight? right now the only thing i can do is wait a while and hope he just needs to dry out
