help needed to save me selling beetle!

Post  Dubpete on Tue May 22, 2012 5:30 am

hi guys if anyone could possibly lend a hand one evening to have a little look at why beetle wont get fuel/start it would be great as it could mean i could get it insured and drive it. as the corsa is boring me big timeeee!

i have taken fuel pump off this evening and cleaned it out and now seems to be pumping ok. i have checked all fuel pipes but still wont go.

idealy i would like to use this as my main car while campers getting ready but i have popped a post on vzi to see if anyone would want a px for a modern run about. but i simply cant bare to get rid of her Sad

thanks guysss!

Hello mate, so is the fuel pump pumping fuel out? Is the reservoir in the carb filling up? If so, it sounds like the carb is fooked...
I can possibly come round next week with a couple of carbs to see if we can get it working...

Ok buddy, I will come over and have a look next week. Will bring the compressor too...
I think rob might have suggested running another fuel line, that might be your only option.
Give me a text on Monday and I will try to come over Tuesday or wednesday...
Cheers
