Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

Car starts, runs, drives fine, then will die out. then no start..

2001 beetle 2.0l died out without warning in the middle of a busy intersection. the scanner pulled up misfire codes (p0301, p0302, etc...) & also secondary air inj sys code (p0411) we changed out the plugs, wires, & coil pack after 127,000 + miles of never being changed. the battery was also changed out because the car sat for a liitle over a month. the car started & ran fine around the block. the codes were cleared out & the check engine light never came back on. the charging system tests fine. the car died on the young lady on the road and she had to push it off to the side. the car wouldn't start after dying out. does the car have to go through some sort of "reset" process??

My 1998 Volkswagen Beetle keeps dying.


With the car running rough it could cause the harsh shift but if it is staying at 5000 rpms then the ****** is about to go out on you. The rough idle sounds like a vacuum leak. If you can keep the car running at idle listen for a sucking type sound. That would indicate where the vacuum leak is.

1995 LeSabre - Starts and runs fine, but engine cuts off without warning. First time, 5mph in a crowded school commute traffic. Put in park, and started right away. Second time, after turning onto...


If the motor gets hot and cuts off and will not start for a period of time the problem would be the crank sensor. The sudden cut off and starting right back up can be due to dirty battery cable connections. Remove them from battery and clean all three of them with a wire brush and replace both bolts.
