    When my 1981 truck gets to temp, the fuel pump has been quitting on me. I've tried different fuel pump relays--no change. When I jumper the relay socket, the pump runs and I can move on down the road. Before the engine reaches temp, and after it cools down, the engine runs normally. I'm thinking...

    My 1981 truck has been stalling when the engine reaches temp recently. When I try to start it again, the fuel pump doesn't kick in. If I wait 15 or 20 minutes, it will usually start again, but only until the engine reaches temp again. I'm thinking the coil, the warm pressure regulator, or? I...

    Hey everyone, so I have a 81 rabbit pickup with the 1.6D ever since I bought the truck I've had trouble with air in the fuel lines, it's only when the truck isn't running the fuel rushes back to the tank, when it's running it's fine, I have pressure tested the system and I found no fuel leaking...

  9. CC Owners Club
    Hello everyone,, Having had six Passats and none of them have ever been on the back of a breakdown truck I am firmly a VW man. However I always fancied the CC as they look so cool. (at 65 years old I can still say that-Right?) OK. I bought a June 2014 GT CC in black. The parking sensors aren't...

    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...

    My truck won't start after overcharging the battery. I changed the voltage regulator/alternator and the ICM. It still won't start. How would I check the coil? Would the hall sender in the distributor be suspect after charging at 18v for a couple of days? What damage and to what could result in...

    I'm thinking of using a spare diesel starter on my gas truck---can it be done and would it be more durable?

    For the last few weeks, I've been hearing a noise, like a vacuum noise. I ignored it. The other day, my trunk opened randomly. I tried to close it. It opened again until finally, it don't it. I was driving and the trunk opened again. Last night I went to start my car, the trunk open again...

    I had a voltage regulator fail and overcharged the system for maybe a day or two. Now I can't get my truck started. What parts of the ignition system could have been damaged by this? Coil, ignition control module (ICM), Hall sender, plugs or wires (coil to distributor wire)? I'm hoping none of...

    I have an IP on an '82 diesel truck that leaks fuel back of the cold start cable connection. Can I fix this without a major rebuild? I have the kit for the total job, but it looks like one seal is the problem. The truck runs fine while it is leaking. I put an '81 engine in and suppose I have to...
