Hi guys......Appologies for this being my 1st post. I needed a kick up the ass to join. I have a whole host of niggly things wrong with my mk4 estate but the major one right now is....it wont start.
Driving to work this morning the car cuts out when I dipped my clutch to slow for a junction. Started up after a few cranks and drove fine the last mile or so to work.
After work it will not start at all, it tried 3 spluttery attempts but didn't stay running for more than 10 seconds or so (would rev freely whilst it was briefly running)....not even doing that now.
I took off the fuel filter casing suspecting a block or fuel starvation of some sort, I understand I'll have to re-prime this before attempting to start it again. Fuel filter was a bit used but fine, whilst the lid of the filter housing was off I got a friend to turn her over and I noticed no fuel flow to the filter housing from the pipe marked 'In'....should this gush when the engine turns over????
I'm at a loss really as to where to start other than to investigate the fuel system..
Someone please put me out of my misery....this car driving me nuts but I love its versatility. Already had new gearbox & Turbo
