Question about 2002 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo S

1 Answer

Idling is rough after long distance drive

Have a 2002 vw new beetle diesel, runs great local but when I take a 50 or 60 mile drive, the idling is rough at stops, drives the same way in the morning. Once back home, it never has that problem? Its chugging, if you know what I mean.

Try draining the fuel filter and replacing first if it does not clear up then I need some more information from you do the cheep fix first. also use a diesel injector cleaner to clean the nozzles and valves as carbon build up will cause timingto be off.

02 Kia sedona. I changed the catalytic converter, Plugs, and wires, and it is idling very rough. Before I changed all this it burned a quarter tank of gas in about 20 miles so it is not burning the gas....


Well since you changed all of those things there are still come other culprits that can cause rough idling. Another cause of a misfire or rough idling may be a coil that is not functioning properly. Also Sensors that are not reading correclty. The most possilble sensors would be the mass air flow sensor, idler air control, or o2 sensor. They all have control in telling your control module how much air is entering in the engine so that it can determine the appropriate amount of fuel that needs to be used with that air for combustion. If its burning a great amount of fuel then the system is running rich. Have your local parts store check to see if you have a codes.

Hope This Helps!

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

Check engine light


You can try to google "Mouse Meat Inc". The owner, Earl, he knows everything about VW. You can try to give him a call or contact with him, he will tell you how to solve your problems. I had him fix my car before and ever since then my beetle is problem free. He's the one you want to talk to, he's way better than any dealers. He's located in Tacoma, WA, if it's not anywhere near you, he can even try to hook you up with someone he knows that's close to your location. Definetely give him a call!

The flashing is telling you that the engine is mis-firing, the dealer will run a test to determine the cylinder that is mis-firing, chances are it is something simple
