Try changing the engine temp sensor. The sensor will be telling the ECU that the engine is hot when actually its cold. therefore the fuel mixture will be weak.I this doesnt cure it, i would be looking at fuel starvation. Faulty of cracked fuel pump or just maybe run out of fuel.

What would cause the 03 beetle to start fine and then die immediately? There is gas in the car, and the car was driven into the garage the night before without any problems. Help!


The bproblem ussually is there isnt enough fuel pressure try fuel filter first then if that does not cure it you will have to get new fuel pump.

My 2000 VW Beetle idles really rough and loses


I had that problem for the longest time. I had to clean the Mass Air Flow Sensor. Very easy to get to. Go to any auto parts store and ask them for the MAFS Spray. If cleaning it doesn't work, you may need to replace the MAFS. Once again easy to replace. Make sure you put it back nice and tight.....

1998 beetle will start and idle, but will die when accelerated


When was the last time you had your fuel filter replaced ?? Sounds like the engine may be starved for gas because of a clogged fuel filter. If you have no record of having been replaced, this may be the least expensive place to begin, but be careful the quick disconnects on the fuel filter can be difficult to push in. Also, the fuel lines will be pressurized when they are disconnected, and could spray gas into your face if your not careful. If you damage the disconnects on the fuel lines you will need to have the lines replaced, so be gentle.

Will not rev above 4000 rpm. Shifts hard


Possibility of fuel line filter being full of gunk, replace with new one?

2000 VW Beetle dies occasionally and won't start for a while


run a scan tool on it and make sure there are no codes, if there is codes address those problems first, if no codes.. next time it won't start check for fuel preasure. it is probably a fuel pump getting ready to go out or they may be a large amount of something other than gas clogging the pick-up sock at bottom of fuel pump.
