Mk2 golf gti 8v fuel problem
« on: 23 July 2017, 16:25 »
Hi can anyone help? I've finished restoration on my golf and had her running up to temp no problems...until I went for a drive round the block and it just cut out and wouldn't start again. I've checked everything, seems to be no fuel getting up to the injector rail, I've tried a different fuel pump and pick up pump but still won't start! If I leave it a while it seems to fire for a sec but then just turns over. I noticed a small leak on the rail but it was running with this leak. My head is vertically bald with me pulling my hair out over the bloody thing! Any advice please?

Did you change the lift pump or the pressure pump?
