    2000 GTI ??

    My buddy bought a 2000 GTI two weeks ago. He's been out five times and now it maybe toast. I believe it has a 720 single carb but I can't really get a good look without removing the air box. The fuel gauge doesn't work. I did find the repair thread for that. He fouled a plug yesterday and put a new set in. Today it just died on the lake. One plug is dark and the other is looking too lean. How is that possible with a single carb? I believe he may have cooked the lean cylinder. It turns over slow now. He has a full tank of oil and the oil light was flashing once in a while. Does that light indicate anything else besides oil level? Guess I'll pull the head off tomorrow after work.

    Sounds like you have a leaking crank seal. Air is getting in and causing that cylinder to run lean.

    Thanks Neil, that is what I was thinking. I was hoping it was a head gasket. I haven't taken anything apart yet. It could have o-rings for all I know.
