Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

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

Car has never had any issues but about two weeks ago after about a 10 min drive where everything was going fine I stop to get gas and when trying to start the car the engine would turnover but not start. After about 30 min. it started and all was well for about two days then after a trip to the post office same thing happened and after about 30 min it starts fine. Then the other day it just shut down while driving and after about 30 min started fine. After having the cam position sensor replace by a local mechanic who said this was the problem after a trip to the local pub same thing happens. From cold it has always started but after even short trips it will not start after being shut off. It has also shut down twice again..

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.

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.....

2003 VW Jetta TDI Check Engine Light Issue


Try disconnecting the battery (unhook on of the terminals) wait for like 15 mins, hook the terminal once again and start the car. I also own a 2003 Jetta and once my engine light would come on after 2 mins of driving. Disconnecting the battery is like resetting the computer and hopefully the sensor.

Clock/Mileage gage stay on even when car is off.. Is this Normal?


I have a Jetta 2005 and I just noticed that after this:
when my battery died after 7 hours playing my stereo, then I charged it for 30 minutes and my car could start on again. After that incident thet remote key started failing when I push the open button twice to open all doors. They remain closed, only passenger door open. Then I disconnected battery over 15 min to reset computer, and the clock and mileage gage remain on all time after that. Never remain on before it was disconnected and conneted again.
