Question about 1999 Volkswagen Beetle

Gas light in 99 beetle won't turn off

My gas light came on in my 99 beetle when I started my car and the needle was very slow to move. I have about 3/4 of a tank of gas but after driving for about fifteen minutes it only showed half. The light turns on when I start the car, is off for a second, then comes back on even though it shows over half a tank. (Needle moves at regular speed to catch up to where it last was when I shut the car off.) Any ideas?

It's probably a sensor issue.

I wnet out of gas on my VW Beetle 2001 last saturday. When I added gas to the tank, the car wouldn't start and the EPC light went on and I haven't been able to get it to start ever since. Would the EPC light have anything to do with the gas pump or anything related to running out of gas?

2005 volkswagon beetle won't start


There are 3 simple ways to troubleshoot this: Gas, Spark, or Air. The car is not getting enough of one of these. If it turns over you have battery power.

Gas - Is there enough?
Spark - Remove each plug and lay it close to the motor and have someone turn it over while you verify the spark for each cylinder.
Air - Verify the air filter is not clogged

99vw beetle gets really loud past 40mph, like a


Sounds like something is caught up inside or outside the engine/transmission where a part is grinding from something reciprocating. Does the sound happen when you apply the gas without the car moving? If the sound only happens while moving then it could be suspension or transmission related. If it only happens with or without the car moving as long as you control the gas then it's probably in the engine or transmission related. Could also be a wheel bearing issue, that will be a humming sound inside the cabin. As you speed up the pitch increases and the opposite happens when you slow down.
