- 1993 Golf 1.9D 427000kms and counting!
hey guys i just bought a 1993 1.9 golf and seems to have a lot more problems then the seller felt like telling me at the time of purchase. Car wont start right now after 2 sessions of draining the battery and charging back up to full and boosting it, i occasionaly see air bubbles in the clear fuel line going to the injection pump, when i did get the car running yesterday i backed it out of my drive to find a MASSIVE oil spill and so i shut it off anf refilled it with some shell rotella synthetic, oil level good, started up no problem when warm or at least once it has gotten started. My engine temp gauge does not ever go over hash marks and thats after 2.5 hours of highway driving 70mphish i have felt the coolant hose and it is hot coming from the tank (that little hose) so i have a vw tstat and g12 coolant that i was planning on doing this holliday but now am struggling to start it let alone do any maintenance is there a special way to start these old engines, im aware of the csa cable and have it pulled out but not sure it actually works. help. me. please. oh. my.
