Wont start after fixing air leak in fueling...?
I have a 1994 passat 1z,
It wouldnt start and there was clearly air in the fuel lines.
I disconnected the battery and put a charged one in.
I removed the air filter to find that it had worn a hole through the fuel line!
I cut it out and sorted it all out.
I turned the engine over and now there is no air in the clear pipes whatsoever.
I had the injectors cracked off to bleed, but only a small ammount of fuel would get to them.
I thought it would come out pretty fast, and almost hit the bonnet but it didnt.
I cannot get it started unless i use ether/easy start, but then when this dies out it doesnt continue to run. It also doesnt help the engine to suck the fuel to the injectors.
Does anybody have any opinions on this? could it be the solenoid on the end of the pump not letting fuel through? i can hear it click when i turn the ignition on though.
Any help will be greatfully appreciated,
