Question about Cars & Trucks
I was given a 1998 Volkswagen Beetle it had the head milled and put back on but the person doing the work left with the money for the job and did not do the rest of the job. I have a lot of parts here in the car but I do not have a manual to look at for finishing the job and do it right since I am not a Auto Person to start with. Our car was totaled and we do not have the money to have someone to do it for us. What I need to know is how to do it, in what order to put things together and how to do it some Photos that ID the parts and just what goes to what or some Diagrams to go buy! dose anyone know where I could download a manual in PDF? Thank you for any help you can give me on this matter. until we talk again, peace be with you and yours, TEDRVB

u can get a boot with all accessories and grease for like 12 bucks at napa. u will need a clamping tool but might be able to sub in a vice grips. depending on if its inner boot or outter you have to take the steering knuckle most of the way off and then cut the old boot and slip on new one with grease and then the clamps. when u are done you will need a front ent alignment. for the amount of work and the aliugnment $200 doesnt seam too bad but depends how comfortable u are doing all the work.

The thermostat on your volkswagon helps the engine keep operating at a predetermined temperature for best fuel economy and engine performance. However, the thermostat mechanism wears down after months of use and subsequently fails. If stuck in the closed position, the thermostat will not allow coolant to circulate, causing the engine to heat up dangerously; if stuck in the open position, the engine will never reach proper operating temperature, causing fuel consumption and poor engine performance. In either case, the thermostat must be replaced. Its fairly cheap

You don't have the proper key. The flip key assembly has a chip in it that lets the car keep running. Use old key assembly. To test put the old ket fob next to the ignition switch and see if it keeps running,
