Question about 2006 Volkswagen New Beetle

1 Answer

It shut off while driving, no warning, no beep no light it just shut down and won't start. I took the air intake hoses off and found oil in there...is this a turbo problem and can it be rebuilt?

I replaced the turbo on this car 40000 miles ago. Can this be a bad turbo and can they be rebuilt?

Turbo wont cause it not to start. Oil in induction hoses is normal at higher mileage and does not mean needs a turbo again. If turbo sprayed out oil whilst driving you would know about it....masses of smoke from exhaust and unconrtollable engine rpm. Sounds more like a failed CPS (crank sensor) or electrical issue.

    Thanks for the info. I finally got it towed back to the mechanic who says it's the fuel pump. Quote is outrageous...over $1000 seems to high!

SOURCE: brake warning light on,beeper sounds when car is driving

Sounds like the sound when you leave the handbrake on. The same light as the low brake oil level will come on with the handbrake. And the warning sound coming from the cluster will come on if you leave the handbrake on and start driving to warn you that you left it on. Guessing your handbrake is not on and that your brake level sensor on the master cylinder is good (on the cap) check your handbrake switch and the wires there. You can unplug it and try it like that or you might have to bypass the 2 wires in the connector together. I can't remeber if with the handbrake on if it closes the circuit or the opposite. Once you have the connector in your hand you can unplug it with the car running and see if the light goes off. If not you can jump the 2 wires and see then. Or just check the switch isn't staying stuck. You'll see more once the handrake console is off. Just look around the mechanism of the handbrake and you'll find the switch.

The flashing is telling you that the engine is mis-firing, the dealer will run a test to determine the cylinder that is mis-firing, chances are it is something simple

I would check the oil pressure sensor and the oil pump itself. You can take the sensor out and use a mechanical gauge to check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is within specs, you need a new sensor, if not, you need a new pump.

SOURCE: Exhaust system light is on - 2006 Jetta

What you here running after you shut your car off is just your exhaust fan. Your turbo will not continue to run. As for the oil change effecting the exhaust this may be an issue. IF they actually drained the regular oil and then put synthetic then you should be ok. But if they just put more in on top then they may have messed up your Cat converter...good luck with everything

Loss of power when hot


Have you tried to change the fuel filter. This may be due for a change, or have some contaminant slowing the fuel down.
Also have you tried a fuel additive to clean the fuel system.
Try adding some methylated spirits. This will mix water with petrol and take it out of your fuel system. You can add 1/2 pint or 300 ml to a tank full of fuel without any change in performance. You do not need to do this often.

I would try cleaning the throttle valve body and also the automatic idle speed control valve mounted to the throttle body, this is a common symptom of a dirty throttle valve and idle speed control valve. Use a product called "CRC" Throttle valve cleaner, run the engine and spray it into the air intake of the engine with the supply hose removed, hold the throttle up while you do this as it will try to stall, use up about half the can and then shut it down and disconnect the battery NEGATIVE cable for 5 min's to reset the system learned strategy, drive it for a few days and see if this corrects the problem.

After starting the engine, it immediately shuts off, or rpm will start going down until it shuts off. Does not happen all the time, but it's getting more frequent.Doesn't matter if engine is hot or cold....


I have a 2000 ES300 that was giving me the exact same problem. The Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) was dirty and and was getting stuck. It's an easy do-it-yourself job that took about 15 minutes. You have to remove the black air intake hoses to get to it. I just sprayed it with carburetor cleaner and went ahead cleaned the intake manifold since it was exposed. There's also a good write up on clublexus.com if you need detailed directions.

Car will start fine but will shut off as soon as I place in gear.


Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

2008 Dodge Avenger SE oil pressure light?


Don't worry about the oil pressure light, they key was on, the engine was running and suddenly stalled, the system saw it as low oil pressure on a running engine situation and warned U, it is not the cause of the stall, the stall is most likely related to the following.
