Question about 2002 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo S
My car spits and sputters and you have the gas peddle down but you cant gain speed has a hard time shifting because you cant get speed also i took my foot off the gas to apply brake then went to give gas it didnt even get a chance to apply gas took off at a high speed like it was floored
Sounds like possible block in catalyst or broken up and blocked catalyst or oxygen sensor fault causing fuel/air mixture confusion if you take first o2 sensor out of exhaust manifold/pipe and see if performance back then this will confirm blockage although will be slightly noisy while testing cos sensor removed.
