hello everyone
i have a 1995 golf mk3 gti, i know its not a vr but i didnt know ware else to go lol
the car starts up but sputters for a couple of seconds then dies,
iv checked the fuel filter and it was clear, i then removed the fuel hose and turned the ignition on and sometimes fuel comes out and even then its only a little bit then other times nothing happens,
should the fuel pump run with just the ignition on or does the engine need to be running for the fuel pump to be running constantly.
am i looking at the right area or could it be something else???

please help me lol

if it aint scrubbing it aint dubbing

I know its stupid, but have you actually got fuel in the tank? :-)
This should be the same for most cars;
The fuel pump should prime for 3 seconds every time the ignition is switched on, then run run constantly when the engine is running.

Think it may be meant to squirt a little bit in with ignition on , what happens if you press and hold the throttle down ?

if they are fitted to the GTI you remove the steering cowling and you will see a brown ring around where the key goes
