Tests Explain Why Beetle Won’t Run

I finally find a one-page black-and-white wiring diagram that’s close in one of my information services’ archives section. I start this “project” with expectations of finding the usual extra problems created by the well-meaning “wannabe” technicians through whose hands this car has passed since its demise some four years ago, according to its registration. It’s also had two different owners since it last ran on its own systems. I find an overfull crankcase with the smell of stale fuel, carboned-up spark plugs and a sensor connector terminal with “baby bird mouth” syndrome.
