2000 VW BEETLE DIES WHEN COMING TO A STOP


you might have bad gas when it sits for months the gas will separate. best to do is run all the gas out of it till it stops running. have a 2 gallon or 5 gallon gas can with you and fill it up when it finally stops. the other thing you can look for is a rust ground. I had this problem with a saab 9-3 took me months to figure it out. the battery and alternator you can go to any local parts store and have them test the charging system to see if there is any problems

I ran out of gas put 5 gallons of gas in the car drove car 2 miles. Filled it up. Went to eat. Then drove car 20 miles. Car sat overnight would not start next morning. Relay was changed. All fuses good....


By running the car out of fuel you may have damaged the fuel pump. You need to perform a fuel pressure test with a pressure gauge to see if the fuel pump is working and is working at the proper pressure. You might check your fuel filter as well. I suspect a bad fuel pump.

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...


Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.

The problem may be the gas that sat in the carburator. Gas goes bad faster in smaller quantities. Have a look inside to see if you have "gummed" up passages, or jets. Don't forget to change the fuel filter.
Good luck. (I have an 89, and it's a great truck, 300k miles on it.)

Trouble starting. cold or hot


What I don't understand is why mechanic said it would be hard starting in cold, if he actually fixed the choke. My guess is that there is still something wrong with the choke. If you pump the pedal 2 or 3 times, then put to floor & let it up slowly, before starting cold, does that help?

Car won't start


Your fuel pump is sticking and not pumping, this is common if you run the fuel down to less than 1/4 full, the fuel pump needs the gas to cool itself, below a 1/4 tank the pump is not getting cooled and after repeatably running low on fuel it overheats and fails. Running the car near 1/2 tank extends the pump life to many years more than running tank below a 1/4 full..
