Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
My Car (Golf MK3 GTi 1996 Model) takes 5 to 6 tries in the morning to start, the starter will turn but the engine will not start. Round about the 4th try the engine will start then die, that will happen +/-3 times then the Car will start. Once the car is idling I will try accelerate a bit and the RPM will drop and the car will cut out.
Sometimes after driving the car for a while if I stop at a shop or something I will need a Jump start from another Cars battery, This takes some time to start the car then as well.
The car’s RPM will also go Up by themselves after this, they will go high then low and after about a minute will stabilize so that I may drive again.
What could be the Problem, I have brand new Battery and Spark Plugs.
Hi,,sounds like a air leak,,,,check the main air intake hose,,these split for a passtime,,and cause the symptoms you describe,,,
