This is one of my first posts and I need some advice or an answer if anyone knows. I have recently acquired a vr6 mk3 ob2 97 I'm a complete novice with the vr6 so I'm only a newbie. So I thought best service the car done the oil and filter let it have a good run (ran spot on) and I have gone to do the plugs a week later. Now I changed all the plugs but in the process snapped a HT lead they are very tattered to start with. So I ordered a new set 8mm ones replaced just the one lead that was broken to test but the car won't start but does turn over. The car has sat a week or two before replacing the lead. So I have now removed all the new plugs and checked them, all OK and they all smell of petrol as expected. Fitted them back and also replaced all the leads for the new set. Still won't start. I'm suspecting the battery at the minute as when the car tries to start the dash lights dim and the battery light also dims. The oil light however blinks on and off. This slightly concerns me. I's this normal when the battery acts up or is there something daft I'm missing. It must be me playing with the ignition or the fact the car has sat and the battery has gone flat. I tried jumping it but not for long didn't give it enough time to charge really as I didn't have enough time. Any help would be appreciated. Love the noise these things make carnt wait to hear it again.
