Looking for suggestions where to start with troubleshooting:
VAGcom scan for codes, write down, erase
crank. See what codes come back
crank position sensor bad IIRC creates 'crank no start'? checking crank sensor with VAGcom, engine module, measuring block where RPM show. Crank. I values (100 rpm or so) show the crank sensor good?
likely unrelated: had very cold temp start problems. then: fired/started after a few tries, but did not want to take gas; idle slowly increased and stabilized, then driving fine; restarting fine when warm
check fuses (which circuit/fuse can create 'crank, no start' condition?
remove rear seat bench and listen for fuel pumps to kick in. I would assume car would at least fire a bit if only one of the 2 pumps (in tank and in line) died, or?
remove spark plug and check for spark
not sure how to test for fuel, except lots of cranking and taking plug out and check if wet, and gas smell from exhaust? Suggestions
Other notorious failure source that could lead to crank/no start?
