    I have the same problem. It runs really bad when it is cold. I replaced the spark plugs and a coil. Nothing. Autozone ran a test and it said it was the fuel injector. The vault o meter does not detect any problems with the injectors..... now I don't know hwat to do.

You can try to google "Mouse Meat Inc". The owner, Earl, he knows everything about VW. You can try to give him a call or contact with him, he will tell you how to solve your problems. I had him fix my car before and ever since then my beetle is problem free. He's the one you want to talk to, he's way better than any dealers. He's located in Tacoma, WA, if it's not anywhere near you, he can even try to hook you up with someone he knows that's close to your location. Definetely give him a call!

Why does my saturn sound so bad when idles?


if the car is loud/noisy there is a hole in the exhaust system and this will cause a rough idle because of a loss of back pressure and the vales will not open and close properly resulting in the rough idle it also will make the engine run hotter and this will cause your spark plug gaps to increase and the spark will be less than needed to ignite the fuel in the cylinder for proper combustion which will result in poor gas mileage and lack of power is the check engine light on?

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.....

My 2002 vw turbo beetle cut off while driving.


this is not good; you probably ran the turbo bearings dry and they have seized try to loosen the turbo by removing it breaking it loose and lubricating the bearings if they are still good or, find another one at the junkyard

Check engine light blinks


My suggestion is to get the fault codes stored in the car's ecu read by a VW approved garage. That will tell them what "was" wrong. Once a fault has occurred the check engine light will probably stay on until the warning has been cancelled using VW software.
As for the grade of gas used in the car, the users manual will tell you that - it might also be written inside the filler cap.

I wouldn't recommend further use of "engine cleaner" - it might do more harm than good.

Go get the codes read and then you'll know for sure.

Hope this helps. D
