2007 GTI wont start...
Ok guys Im trying to help my wife's uncle on this one.
It has not been turned on in over a yr. I told him to drain the fuel and get fresh one in there and charge the battery. It wont start, it seemed to be the battery because it would crank a few times with low power. Got a new battery and still does the same...

1st cup of coffee guess...slow turning..water got in starter, starter rusty
second guess..water got injet pump, pump siezed up
third guess...we'll you don't want to hear that one.
put a voltmeter on the "new" battery and check to see what it drops to while cranking, if it drops below 10, the new battery is crap

Well, I would have thought it was not going to be #3 since the guy is really anal about his stuff...but it was!
He forgot the part about me telling him to turn ON the ski BEFORE the water when flushing the engine
9 hours later I had the ski running...Took the intake manifold out and drained the water, got new plugs and changed the oil 5 times....Going to burn it up this Sunday and then do another oil change....will be heading out to the keys beginning of August and do another oil change after that...
