Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
I replaced the plugs but it didnt help, I removed the ignition module/coil and it has several cracks in it. Could this be the problem? Thanks
Yes, this will allow for the energy being generated to the plugs to release onto anything close enough to give it a ground. I found a website that said to remove it and coat it with liquid steel 2 part epoxy. I did that on m y '98 Beetle and worked very well for about another year. These coil packs are a POS and VW knows it, but will do nothing to resolve the issue. I did see where they recalled all 2001 & 2002 VW's to replace them, but did nothing to acknowledge the previous years, which are of the same caliber.
