[Vwdiesel] trying to start after sitting.

I've finally gotten around to trying to start the Rabbit. It's been out
of commission for about 1.5-2 years now. I tried to prime the pump with
some PowerService but what's the best way to get the air out of the
system? Do you then just crank the key until it starts?

Also, how fast should the turn-over rate be? It's considerably slower
than my TDI and gassers. Might the starter be a bit weak? The battery is
brand new...just bought it yesterday.

Thanks, Mike
