I am about to get a baja bug from my uncle, that has been sitting in his yard for 4 years.

when he parked it, it ran, and now it doesn't. what are the likely causes of this, and where should I start as for replacing parts?

sorry for the n00b questions, but I've NEVER worked on a beetle before Smile

hopefully that will all change very soon.

Thanks!

It needs Fuel, Spark, Compression.
The first thing to do is squirt a little oil or diesel fuel in each spark plug hole and turn the engine over. Next see if it has spark. Repair if needed Third after four years the gas tank needs to be drained/ inspected/ cleaned/ rebuilt. If the tank is rusty, clean it with phosphoric acid and paint the inside with POR 15 gas tank paint. Replace all the fuel hoses and fuel filter. Note which hoses are suction and discharge on the fuel pump. See if the pump works.
Buy the VW factory repair manual for your year VW. Chirco stocks them, oem fuel hose and filters if you cannot get one locally.
