SOURCE: 1998 vw beetle stalled

Sounds like you have a gremlin running around under the hood, just kidding. The check engine light was probably caused by a failing sensor, or it could have been a loss of oil pressure due to the old oil. If the problem never returns then I think it is safe to say it was a loss of oil pressure, but if it is a failing sensor this will occur again. When and if it does happen again do not reset the computer, take the car to an autozone(they diagnose check engine lights for free) if you have one around you. The diagnostic will tell you exactly what sensor has caused this, but if you reset the computer ther is nothing to diagnose. And a dealer or shop can charge 60-90 dollars for the diagnsis. Based on my expirence if it is a sensor it is probably the MAP(Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor) this sensor is probably the only one that will completly shut down the car, most other sensors will fail and your check engine light comes on but the car stays running.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: 2000 VW Beetle 1.8 turbo

Thermstat is located at the front of the motor to the left(passenager side of motor) under the intake by the serpent belt area you'll see the goose neck bolted to the block. Part cost $20. If a car service does it about $150 or more. And if you need a wtaer pump it's located behind the timing belt cover.( VW won't recall none of these cars for cooling problems, electrical problems and so on. 1.8 turbo is the worst of all the VW's hope the head on your motor doesn't melt.) Get it fixed and trade it in. Buy American.

SOURCE: emergency latch for gas cap 2000 VW Beetle, where is it?

From the manual:

  • Open the rear lid.
  • Open the cover on the backside of the luggage compartment. To open the cover, turn the two "quick-releases" and fold the cover down.
  • Reach through the opening by the fuel filler flap. Grab the cable with th plastic covering and pull down. The filler flap will open by itself.
Best of luck!

SOURCE: 1998 beetle - how to get the fuel filter off

The fuel lines are pressurized so you will need to relieve the pressure before you try and remove the filter or you will get a face full of gas. The filter comes off by pushing the fuel line toward the filter and then pushing the quick release button on the fuel line. The fuel line should then decouple - the filter lives under the car near the right rear tire (just in front) Good luck and be careful

Where is Bank 2 sensor 1 oxygen sensor on my 2007 tundra 5.7


Bank 1 is always the sameside of the engine as the number one cylinder.
Bank 2 is always the other side of the engine.
Sensor 1 is always before the cat
sensor 2 is always after the cat.

Cylinder number 1 on this engine is on the drivers side. So bank 2 is the passenger side of the engine and sensor 1 will be located before the catalytic converter.

Miss fire in #2 Cylinder


Front of the engine is where the belts are located, #1 is the front cylinder closest to the belts. Followed by 2, 3, and 4. So the #2 cylinder is the second one back from the front of the engine.

Where is the the thermostat on a 2.0 , 2000 vw beetle ? Thank you


First time you might check the thermostat operating.

Heed of antifreeze coolant temperature!!!


The thermostat location for 2000 VW Beetle 2.0L is on back of the alternator at the bottom side of the bracket.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is NOT necessary to replace the alternator if you want to change the thermostat !!!

Thermostat checking:
1. Cold engine. Start up the engine and watch of the water temp indicator. After first value 60 Celsius Degree you still warm up the engine until the lifter (pointer) reach 80 C deg. (second mark after 60 C deg.). At this time you let engine running at idle speed and check with your hand the thermostat plastic housing and hose temperature in bottom left side of the engine. Heed of alternator driving belt and ventilator fan !!!
2. If the thermostat is good the hose must be cold until the water temp indicator reach almost 90 C deg.
3. The thermostat opening temperature is 87 C deg.
4. If the hose is already warm the thermostat is out of order.

Thermostat location, Part number: 050 121 113 C, in german - "Kuehlregle".

Remark: 87 ... 102 Celsius deg.
Price around $35:

Important note: Always replace the thermostat seal, position 7 in the above picture.

Were is the bank 2 censor located


Oxygen sensors are always numbered like this:

Bank 1 sensor 1
Bank 2 sensor 1
Bank 1 sensor 2
Bank 2 sensor 2

some manufacturers use a kind of shorthand that reads different, but means the same thing:
Sensor 1/1 or O2s 1/1
Sensor 2/1 or O2s 2/1
Sensor 1/2 or O2s 1/2
Sensor 2/2 or O2s 2/2

Bank 1 is always the side of the engine where cylinder number 1 is located and, of coarse, Bank 2 is the opposite side.
On a 4 cylinder engine, there is only 1 bank and it is always referred to as Bank 1.

Sensor 1 is always the upstream sensor (The one located BEFORE the catalytic converter)
Sensor 2 is always the downstream sensor (the one that is located AFTER the catalytic converter.

Most GM engines have #1 cylinder located on the left bank, (or Driver's Side) of the engine,
