What kind of oil should I put in my 2000 VW new beetle?


The proper oil weight should be printed on the oil refill cap located under the hood. It's likely a 20 weight oil in the New Beetle.

Where is the oil cap on a 1973 Volkswagon Beetle?


The oil cap is just in front of the generator, slightly to the left and angled to the left(towards the passenger side)(right as you are looking at it). If this is your first VW Beetle(type 1), it would be beneficial to pick up the book "How to keep your VW alive and running. A guide for the complete idiot". It is a must have book for anyone who has a veedub and wants to do any work on it themselves. Almost anyone who has bought one has had this book since the late 70's. It explains everything in an understandalbe format and is kind of funny too! Let me know if you need anything else.

What kind of coolant does the 99 vw beetle use? and were can i buy some? The reason i ask is because my 99 vw beetle over heating light turns on once i turn the car on. what could be causing this? I have...


The cheapest to use is Prestone green. It works fine with any car type. It is a form of ethalene glycol that has been used for over 70 years. Vw does not reccomend it, however. They prefere you use anti-phosphate anti-amine coolant in your Vw. Even then it is reccommended to flush it every 3 years.
The colors are blue G11, red/pink G12, and purple G12+. On your overflow there should be a G# . You can use a higher G# and mix them with lower. DO NOT mix green with any other color. A Flush must be done if changing anti-freeze types.
You may have a bad coolant temp sensor. A VAG scan tool will tell you if it is within tolerances. It plugs into the computer through the slot under the steering wheel. An OBD2 scanner should read these codes as well since they are part of the engine systems. Auto parts stores like the autozone will let you borrow one. It will show the tolerances and the output of the sensors voltage resistance. If it falls outside the range, then replace it. A manual for your car is alway reccommended as well, even for a mechanic.
Good Luck!

WHAT OIL IT NEEDS MY 2000 VW BEETLE 2.0 L WITH 140000 MILES


I found 2 listings for the 2.0L engine, A and B. The 'A' had no info on oil type, the 'B' stated all temperature ranges require type 'SJ' and 5/30 or 5/40 weight. Because the mileage is 140k, I am wondering how often you must add oil between changes. If you add none, or under a quart, 5/30 is ok, if you must add oil more often, use the heavier weight, 5/40.

What oil type do I use...2003 vw beetle?


if U live in a cold climate use 5W-30W, if u live in a moderate climate with hot summers use 10W-30W, any name brand meets your engines requirements. Do not use any oils heavier than these two, it can cause engine bearing damage.
