Asked by Jun 23, 2017 at 07:07 AM about the 1998 Volkswagen Jetta GL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Went to start the car today and it won't start. The
radio and everything turned on, but it won't crank.
It's been randomly stalling out. Asked a friend and
they said that it was stalling because it needs new
spark plugs. Could that be the reason why it won't
crank up?

Check for spark and fuel pressure.

Sparkplugs won't cause it to stall unless they are fouled or have like 150,000 miles on them. Is the check engine light illuminated?

The check engine light is on. Someone just told us that it's the starter.
