Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
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?

Pull out your spark plugs and check for fuel fouling. If they are fouled replace them. If it was badly flooded you may have to shoot a little oil into the spark plug holes then turn the engine over with the spark plugs out. Reinstall plugs and it should fire off. Good luck.

Volkswagen recommend a visual check(for this model) at the first 60,000 miles and then every 20,000 (replace if necessary). There is no manufacturer's recommended replacement interval. (Information gained from Autodata).
However most manufacturer's for the majority of models recommend a change at 72,000 or 5 years whichever comes first.
It is now known that a visual check is not reliable because the kevlar strands inside the belt break down over time and an indication of expected breakage is impossible to gauge.
Using the '72,000 or 5 year' advise, a belt change for anything older than a 2004 vehicle would be a good idea.
In money terms, a change of belt will cost 5 to 15% the cost of belt failure.
If you find this useful advise please rate.
