: starting problem

05-07-2009, 08:37 PM
Im having problems starting my 95 jetta wich i just got. When I go to start it, it has a vary hard time turning over. It usualy takes a few tries to get it going. It has a new distributor cap wires and some sensors. So could it be a vacume problem a sensor on the vacume lines? Could it be somthing else? How can i find out? Are their any sites out there that will give me a diagram that shows me where to look and how to fix any of this? :confused:

Have you gotten your starter, battery, and alternator tested?

Lol well it most likely is. It sounds like it's probably your battery. Go to Autozone/ O'Reilly's/ Advance Auto. They will test all 3 of those for free! Then report back with info.
