2000 VW Beetle: When accelerating or decelerating it pulls very hard to the left, while coasting, it seems to be fine and drives in a strait line. What could this be?


Verify tire pressures, and tires with the same amount of time on the ground. Rotate front to back, diagnostically. Also, a brake failing to release can cause a similar symptom.

When I approach stop light and press in clutch to shift down, car stalls. Battery light comes on. Sometimes will restart and be OK until next stop, other times will not restart until it "rests"...


if it is cranking and starting back i would say its not a batt or alternating problem

most likely the reason the batt light is coming on is because its idleing rough as it quits running if it were me i would just drive it to a dealer and save the toe bill

My 2001 Beetle 1.8l turbo was driving fine and now it stalls out of nowhere. When the Mass airflow sensor was disconnected the car would run fine, So I replaced it thinking that was the faulty part. Now...


i would start by having engine idle in park and pop open the fuse box and move the relays to see if it stalls, many mechanics use a test light to find electrical issues and probe to hard therefore opening the electrical contacts thus causing intermittent point of contacts on relays fuses etc. hope this helps you .if not call me again with further info.

My 2002 vw turbo beetle cut off while driving.


this is not good; you probably ran the turbo bearings dry and they have seized try to loosen the turbo by removing it breaking it loose and lubricating the bearings if they are still good or, find another one at the junkyard

2001 VW Beetle Will not start


Hi.
Check the heavy duty cables from the battery to the starter motor and solenoid and also the battery earthing (grounding?) - there terminals could be corroded / burned.

Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at all. Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D

Car shuts off while driving


***

Don't know if this has anything to do with your problem, but it could be worth a try.
My 2001 turbo had a similar problem when it was low on oil.
The oil light never came on, but it was low enough to cause it to stall.
Seems there has to be enough oil circulating on the camshaft (I think they told me the camshaft, now it has been so long that I am not positive).
Either way, a quart and a half of oil solved my stalling problem.
And the problem got bad enough before I had it towed to the VW shop that it wouldn't start, very much like it had a dead battery or an electrical (starter/ignition) problem, but i still had plenty of power for horn, lights, radio, etc.

Hope this helps!

Peace,

Rob
