Try cleaning and retightening the gas cap. 9 time out of 10 a loose gas cap is causing the problem. The next likely problem is a bad oxygen sensor, but they are expensive.

Take your car to an AutoZone and have them hook it up to a diagnostic computer. They can detect the codes and diagnose the problem. It's FREE, and if you want to fix the problem they may have the parts as well.

My 2001 vw jetta won't shift to second gear


run fault codes and look for a problem in the transmission. Check oil and coolant level as the light is a warning for both the engine and gear box and the failure to shift gears may be that the CPU has locked the vehicle in limp mode to restrict damage in the drive train units.

May have radiator fluid in oil 2001 vw beetle


An oil leak mixing with coolant is an internal leak, which is usually the result of a faulty or damaged head gasket, or cracked head. This is a major repair job, because the entire top of the engine has to be removed to do the repair. You can't see the leak because it's inside the engine, not outside of it. White smoke (steam) should be coming out of the exhaust pipe if this is true.

2001 beetle, 8,000 miles on a rebuilt motor, check engine light is on. What do I check first? Am looking at purchasing this car. Have no manuals to refer too. The light was not on when I drove the car...


Have the the VW scanned for the DTC codes, there are to many things that can cause the Check engine light to come on. It could be as simple as a faulty gas cap to a bad O2 sensor.
Auto Zone scan free of charge and can give you the suggested method of addressing your engine's issues.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck
