Question about 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible
I drive a 2003 Beetle. I have taken it to seven mechanics in the past year and still no one can find the problem. Now the problem seems to have become worse. It started with the gas pedal giving out while I was driving, only to kick back in after about 10 seconds. It progressed to the car losing power and coming to a complete stop (almost as if it ran out of gas). Usually this would happen when I had less than a half a tank of gas. But, there is no leak in the gas tank. When this happened, I could usually just turn it off and turn it back on. Now, the car will not turn on at all. You can turn the key and the engine tries turning over, but will not start. I tried to jump the battery this morning, but the battery is not the problem, the car still will not turn on. You turn the key and it just makes the "chugga-chugga-chugga" sound like it's trying to turn over, but it won't. Any ideas? Suggestions? (Besides taking a baseball bat to the thing...)
