Is the coolant system being pressurized? I'll bet the head-gasket is beginning to fail. If your lucky it's a bad water pump...but I'm voting for head-gasket.

2002 Beetle Engine cuts out after it warms up for a few hours.


Hello,
my advise to you is that:
Your VW problem is the throttle body, (good news) it doesn't need replacement, it only needs to be cleaned out, and even better if a good technician (know what he is doing) can run an adaptation procedure.
this will restore the ZERO position for the TPS and relearn the target engine idle speed.
Good luck.
Note: you are in my prayer.

What makes my 2002 Pontiac Firebird grind when driving and/or turning?


Sounds like a wheel bearing. Jack up front end and spin wheels by hand and listen for grind. Same for rear wheels. Make sure brake linings are good all around. Do the swerve test. Drive down road bout 40mph and swerve moderately one side to other. If noise gets louder with weight shifted to one side more than other its most likely a wheel bearing.

have your dealer inspect it for leaks, with this kind of mileage your valve cover gaskets, oil pan sealer and seals start to develop leaks, also try to use a good quality oil because areation is worst with cheap oils,

My 91 toyota supra has some kind of overheating issue. I just had the radiator repaired and took it for a long hour drive, half an hour into it, the temp guage starts creeping up. Its fine around town but...


The big issue with these supras(I have one) is that the head gasket blows. Check for any white smoke from tailpipe or bubbling in the coolant overflow tank, or rough starting, those are signs i've had. I've also had trouble with my radiator/overheating, so doesn't hurt to double check that. Supraforums.com and Supramania.com are great sites too. If you ever redo the headgasket, do it right, that means quality headgasket, Felpro, or even better, metal headgasket, inspect/resurface the surfaces, and 75 to 80 lbs or torque on those headbolts.

oddly enough it sounds like a transmission problem, get a transmission shop to assess the problem, but first try replacing the thermostat. be sure to turn on the heater when adding antifreeze. I have had this problem with my windstar.

Engine shutting down in extreme heat


Mine does the same thing as far as shutting down on long trips---usually 1 1/2 - 2 hours. I don't think it's overheating....it's got something to do with antitheft system
