    07 GTI Won't Start. Turns over and fires a couple times

    Hi, new to the forum and to computer controlled VWs. Background: I bought this 2007 GTI not running. PO said it just quit at a light and that was it. It sat for 9 months with no battery. I bought a battery and I started doing research and checking things. I replaced the spark plugs, crank sensor, cam sensor, and HPFP cam follower. Ran compression test, checked good. 130ish on all 4 (207K miles). Changed oil, new filter, checked for spark and fuel pressure, checked fuses, cleaned the MAF. No obvious cracks in intake tubes. Engine cranks and fires a couple times then nothing, just keeps cranking. Same results with starter fluid. OBDII codes wouldn't read so I bought a VCDS from Ross-Tech. The output tells me MAF, intake leak, or bad injectors (or all 3!). I will check the MAF with my multi meter tonight. Any thoughts?

    130 PSI compression seems a bit low to me, generally we'd like to see +160 PSI. Having said that, I'd expect the engine to still run.

    Pull the plugs up, crank... any fuel poofing out?

    Add oil to cylinders and see if compression comes up.

    Check fuel PSI and volume delivery from HPP and to it.

    Check or soak/clean fuel injectors and check spray pattern if possible.

    Check intake and PCV for leaks as well as a stuck N80 dumping fuel resulting in washing cylinders/rings.

    All good advice. Thanks. Now to decide which to do first. Before putting in new plugs, I pulled the old ones after trying to start and checked color and condition. One was wet, two were a little moist, and one was pretty dry. All were a dark brown color, typical of burning oil. I did not see any "poof" of fuel out the coil holes when turning it over to check the plugs, but I wasn't really looking for it either. I picked up a new fuel filter today.

    I decided to empty the fuel tank first. My siphon pump tube won't go down the fuel filler tube enough. Is there another easy way to drain the tank? Is 9 month old gas already bad enough to make the engine not start? It doesn't smell like old gas.

    Run fuel output hose at sender to fuel collection tank and run the pump manually. Add your own additional hose to extend from lift pump.

    Sounds simple enough. When you say manually, you mean run a 12v lead directly to the tank pump? I tested the MAF yesterday by putting my multimeter on ohms across the connector pins and got no readings. Should they be open or show resistance?

    Emptied the gas tank. New filter and fresh 91 octane and no change. I'll start looking at the PCV and N80 and checking out the injectors by listening for pulse, then if necessary, pulling them and cleaning them.

    I pulled the PCV and it flows both ways freely. I assume it should shut on one direction. I'm going to get a spark tester (OTC 6589) and check the coils again. Maybe they're weak but showed spark. Can't get to it for a couple weeks though.
