SOURCE: 2000 VW 2.0 Beetle - Manual say not to replace timing belt?

General rule on most cars with a timing belt is change somewhere between 80K and 120K. On some cars, failure of timing belt will destory the engine.

If car is only worth $2500, and labor (parts are cheap on this usually) is $1000, if you can't do it yourself, need to decide if you risk it.

Are you willing to throw away the car when the timing belt breaks? Or spend the $1000, and have some other failure that renders the car useless 5000 miles later?

This is really a financial decision you have to make. If engine blows, you may be able to get $500 for it from junkyard, and you still have your $1000 saved from not changing the timing belt.

SOURCE: VW beetle manual to automatic conversion-- possible?

I disagree with honeymokey, but only partly. Most cars are built to accomodate either manual or automatic, and the appropriate version of the transmission gets bolted on at the factory. The fittings are all there for the other kind, though, and the car's computer can accomodate the change as well. That's the whole point of interchangeable parts. In fact, if you read VW fan forums like the TDI Club online, you'll find plenty of folks who've converted their transmissions, though they're usually going in the opposite direction (replacing automatic with manual).

Having said that, this isn't a cheap or simple job. It only makes sense if the old transmission is dead, and needs to be replaced. In other words, it's something you'd do if you were already facing a $4,000 repair bill for a new transmission. Why not spend the money on installing the kind of transmission you really want, if you're going to spend it anyway? If it's just a question of preference, even STRONG preference, you'd have to be a bit nutty to replace a perfectly good transmission. There are plenty of used Beetles around (and Golfs and Jettas, which are exactly the same car with different bodies), so just find one with the transmission you want.

I have a 2000 VW Beetle - the battery light came on this morning will driving to work (5 minute drive) and by the the time I got to work, the power steering wasn't working. Any ideas?


Sounds like the serpintine belt that turns your power steering pump has broken or came off of the pulley.

You should see the problem when you open the hood.

How to install timing belt on 1998 vw beetle 2


I assume you don't have a Bentley's factory manual and special tool to tighten the belt. I am strongly recommending you purchase either a disc format or hard copy of the factory manual and not generic Chiltons or Hayes because it is necessary for timing marks line up. If you cant buy one I know you can try your local public library for reference materials.

How much to replace a timing chain on a 2000 vw passat--1.8 turbo-- should i do this?--it has 113,000 miles on it and it runs great.-- have changed the oil on it every 5000 miles since new--


You should have the timing belt changed between 90-100K miles. When you are having the belt changed you should also change the water pump rollers. The total cast would be $950.00

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.
