SOURCE: Have a 2001 beetle 1.8 turbo. Lately at low speed

I have been having a similar problem (2001 1.8-TDI Beetle). The rattling sounds almost like wind buffeting the car/whistling, and increases in intensity as each gear revs higher (it gets quieter after a shift, and then builds again). at its loudest (before a shift), there's an additional rattle similar to tin cans in a paper bag being shaken (it's faint, but it's there). I just had the oil changed and the car looked over... not sure what could be the problem, but would like to have even a vague idea before I take it in. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Did you swap out your distributor cap and rotor? Try that first - it's not going to be the cat. You may be losing compression in cylinder #1 one... Hope its the cap/rotor...

SOURCE: 1998 vw beetle codes p0411 and p1128

P0411 Secondary Air Injection System Incorrect Flow Detected
The 4mm inside diameter vaccuum hose gets pinched between the lower intake manifold and the secondary air pump housing, flattening it over time.
Here's a link to the steps to fix yourself if you are mechanically inclined...
http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1995162

P1128 Long Term Fuel Trim Is Too Lean
It is very likely this code is coming up because of the vacuum hose as well.

Error code po0117. Vw beetle


16501/P0117 - Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62): Signal too Low Possible Symptoms
  • Difficulties with starting a cold engine.
  • Starting the engine when engine is warmish or warm, idle rpm immediately is 1200 - 3000 rpm.
  • RPM at idle is irregular.
  • With all engine temperatures seldom idle rpm will vary between 900 - 1000 rpm.
  • With engine warm (90 °C) the engine temperature suddenly drops (70 °C) and slowly comes back to 90 °C.
  • Bad acceleration during warming up.
    • Diesel: an indication is extreme long time burning time of the glow indication light.
Possible Causes
  • The electrical signal coming from G62 is too low
  • Wiring and/or connections faulty (short circuit?)
  • Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62) faulty
Possible Solutions
  • Check wiring and connections
  • Check / Replace Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62)
Special Notes
  • In MY 1995-2002 (?) in Europe at VW-cars the G2/G62 had the bad reputation of breaking down often. The default G2/G62 is black and all replacements are green.

My escort is rpm over 3k when it starts and check engine light comes on. i get codes 116, 412, and 411..what can i do?


Code 116- Engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor out of range, I would replace it.

Code 411- Idle speed system not controlling idle properly (too High)
Code 412- Idle speed system not cotrolling idle properly (too Low)

After replacing the ECT clear codes by disconnecting battery positive for at least ten seconds, see if codes 411, 412 return, if so clean or replace the Idle Air Control solenoid (IAC), repeat clearing of codes. Hope this helps, let me know.

2001 Beetle check engine light is on. Car was sputtering out of first to second gear.. sometimes 2nd to third. Checked code and came up cyliner misfire. Had plugs changed. Engine light is still on. Car...


Hi, the MIL (engine check light) will only go out when the car has had 50 drive cycles - start, run to normal operating temperature and stop, without further faults. A normal EOBD code reader such as you used to check for the fault originally should also be able to cancel the fault and put the light out. If the code won't clear, suspect a faulty ignition coil. Which is a common fault on these vehicles.
Hope that helps Matt...

Check engine light fault code PO505


This code is for your electronic throttle control system it probably needs to be cleaned the butter fly sticks due to build up in side the throttle body clean with tooth brush and emission save throttle body cleaner clear codes and then dissconnect the battery for 3 hours hook back up then go for a short drive stop and go to reset idle control that should take care of this.
