Your best bet is to invest in a Chilton book on your specific vehicle. It will give you pictures and exact directions on how to do this. All Checkers or what ever auto service center you have in your town will carry them. Just a useful warning though - don't buy knock off's just buy the Chilton. Good rule of thumb ALWAYS put it in the same way you took it out. Good luck!!!!

SOURCE: 1999 vw beetle, no fuel going to engine, will not

First check to see if the fuse to the fuel pump is still intact. Fuse No. 28 in the fuse block on the end of the dask just inside the drivers door. Otherwise the fuel tank is located beneath the car by the rear axle and trunk.

You should have a diagram of your fuse block in Section 3.2 of your Owner's Manual.

Has the car been serviced recently?
If not I would suggest getting it done.Not sure if you have diesel or petrol, but oil can thicken causing more load on the motor and airfilters get blocked and can cause a rich fuel mixture.

If petrol you can take out the plugs to check if they are a light brown colour, if very dark or black you need to check and adjust carb/injection settings/filter.Need to know what engine it is really.

Just got my 2000 VW New Beetle with 3/4 tank of gas. Drove it 36 miles and its below 1/2 tank. Could it be the gas that they put in? Or something wrong with the car itself?


On just about every vehicle I have ever seen, the fuel gauge will move faster from 1/2 to 1/4 (I never let a tank run past 1/4. Bad for the fuel pump) than from full to 3/4 or 3/4 to 1/2.
Do a mileage check. Fill the tank until the pump stops, reset your trip or note your odometer miles. Dive a few days or a number of miles. Fill the tank again until the pump stops and not the amont it took to fill. Note the number of miles you put on and do the math.

Gas smell inside car and when refueling it constantly stops like the tank were full


beetles have what they call a "positive pressure"gas tank(the vent is in the cap)and it has a restriction in the filler to stop fuel leaking out if the car overturns.So if you try to put too much fuel in it will kickback and fill the recess in the fender.hence smell in car after refilling.......

1999 VW Beetle problem 1 engine light stays on but it runs great what could be the problem? Problem 2 When I have a full tank of gas it won't start, what could be the problem?


the fuel system is what they call a recycling type (pump to rack back to tank)under pressure.if the filler cap air vent is blocked then the tank will have a partial vacuum restricting the flow of fuel,hence full tank, bad starting.
as far as dash warning lights are concerned i always recc you go to a skoda dealer(they are cheaper)and ask for a full diagnostic report.

Gas smell


your brand new 1972 VW beetle may have as simple hole in the fuel line..when the car is not running you will not see any gas leaks becuase there is no call for gas to be fed to the motor.

have someone, or yourself crawl under the vehicle and look fort a small dripping or small stream of fuel.....REMEMBER!!!!!!!!!...gas is HIGHLY explosive and flammable...no smoking while checking/working on the rpoblem...and fuel's smell comes from Naptha, a chemical added to oil to make gasoline, it is a very strong ordor..a small amount can smell like a gallon.
hope this helps you
