Question about 1999 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

What is a fair price for a used 1999 beetle?

I, am going to look at a 1999 volkswagon bug, it has 130k miles, automatic, in good condition and the seller is asking for $4400.00 or best offer. Is that a fair price? Please help me, I have to meet him at the garage. Oh by the way the car has only had one owner.


Thanks a bunch,
Faith

I would consider a 2005 vehicle fairly new & should be
in good shape

130K is only 78,000 miles,less than 10,000 per year,low
for most people that use a vehicle every day to go to work, etc

$900 is a joke,where did that come from
Has to be worth several thousand if it had no motor at all

I assume you have a head gasket to do
Ideally you do that yourself,then it is worth it

For $5,000 you may get a new motor installed,don't know

#1 cylinder location on 1968 volkswagon bug


As you are looking at it from the front of the vehicle, the firing order works from LEFT to RIGHT, 1-2-3-4-.

You don't have a distributor per se, but rather an ignition coil with 4 wires.

I hope this helps good luck

I have a 1999 volkswagon Beetle and it has over a 150,000 miles. Lately my headlights have been going dim while driving. I had my battery checked and I was told that it has about 2yrs of battery life...


dim lights while driving would be alternator. Check voltage at battery with engine running. Should be at least 14 volts. If you got a new alternator, it would probably be 15 volts or more. That is one way of solving the problem, but alternators aren't cheap.

How can i get the passcode for my radio for my 1999 beetle my daughter bought a used 1999 Volkswagon beetle and the radio does not work. I was told that it has a passcode to reset it, but how to I get this...


You can go to the dealer and they can help you with the radio code and get the radio working again, but if they want crazy money for the code. Log on to radio-code.com. They can get you the radio code for a small fee and you get to keep the code for future radio lockouts. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know your radio is working again.

My 1999 VW new beetle stalls when it warms up. This has happened 5 times now. There is a temperature light that goes out when engine is warm. If I let the car sit for half hour or so it will start again....


The thermostat on your volkswagon helps the engine keep operating at a predetermined temperature for best fuel economy and engine performance. However, the thermostat mechanism wears down after months of use and subsequently fails. If stuck in the closed position, the thermostat will not allow coolant to circulate, causing the engine to heat up dangerously; if stuck in the open position, the engine will never reach proper operating temperature, causing fuel consumption and poor engine performance. In either case, the thermostat must be replaced. Its fairly cheap

2003 Volkswagon beetle temp light is red. (Usually starts out blue and then goes out when the engine warms up.)


A red light indicator may signify a hotter temperature, but may not necessarily indicate an overheating condition. A couple things can lead to this condition - low fluid level (check the fluid resevoir), the wrong coolant being used previously, a weak or failing water pump, a plugged or partially plugged coolant radiator, a bad fan, or a bad thermostat. I'd personally check the coolant first, usually needs to be replaced at about 100,000 miles or so, then check to see if you have any leaks if the fluid level is depressed. Then allow the car to operate from a cold start in the drive while observing the performance under the hood and compare it to the dummy light.

Hope this helps.

Just Bought 1999 Volkswagon Beetle GLS


VWs are generally sound cars. One thing don't let anyone other than the dealer touch your car. Today problems come from untrained repair techs. There are a lot of cars on the market today. Not all techs can keep up with all of them. Just have your car serviced as the manual tells you to. It will last you a long time. One item you will need serviced is the timing belt. Please have this done by the dealer only.
