    my radiator fan on an '81 rabbit pickup (gas) keeps running after the engine has stopped and the key has been removed from the ignition---I suspect the radiator fan switch at the radiator, but am open to other possibilities (?)

    I have a 1981 VW Rabbit Pick (1.6) up that needed a battery so I let it sit for a season. When I installed a new battery and cranked it, it smokes really bad, is skipping, and wont idle.

    I can't start my '81 CIS pickup. I read to check the coil, you should ground a test light and touch on the positive terminal (15) to see if you have voltage, and that it should be 12v or about the same as your battery with the ignition switch on. I had 13 volts at my battery. When I checked the...
