Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

2000 beetle turbo diesel looses power on hills

I had this trouble back at 85,000 miles and the dealer replaced the intake manifold and the throtle sensor at a cost of about 1,200.00.
Now at 125,000 miles it has started to do it again. Cruises pretty well on flat but as I go up a hill on the interstate it gradually slows to about 55 mph and will not respond to more throttle.

Would my leaking intake cause my blazer to loose power going up hills


Yes it would. Take a can of Brakleen and with engine running spray around intake manifold. If it is the source of your leak, the idle will go up.

How to clean intake on 2001 vw beetle diesel


Hi Jay, What do you need to clean and why? If the intake is fouled with oil it would seem to me that the turbo has become defective and is leaking oil into the manifold. Let us know what the problem is and if you want to clean the outside or the inside of the ducting and manifold? there is a great big difference. Regards John

2000 VW new Beetle uses a lot of oil, but has no leaks, oil fouls sparkplugs


Do you have the turbo model? If so you could have a bad turbo. You may also have bad valve seals or piston rings. If you have a turbo you can remove the hose or pipe off of the outlet side of your turbo between the turbo and the intake manifold. If there is oil in it your turbo is leaking and will need repaired.

If you have a lot of black smoke then its over fueling getting to much diesel to the cylinder's. Sounds like an injector problem with the slight knocking noise. Che ck the return pipes are not blocked. If the smoke is dark brown then this is a problem with the valves on the intake manifold which control's the intake of exhaust emmisions.

My wife has a 2000 diesel beetle. This last month


Well, a little oil in the intercooler is okay but a lot is not. Excessive oil in the intercooler usually means the seals in the turbo are leaking. VW diesel have a very bad problem with clogging the intake with carbon. If you remove the intake tube at the throttle body, hold open the "shut down" plate (the butterfly in the TB) and look with a light you will most likely see a huge restriction from goopy, black, carbon. The only way to clean it out well is to remove the intake and clean with carb cleaner, wire brushes and chisels. This could be the cause of overfull oil level (unburned fuel leaking down the cylinders due to lack of air flow from intake. I have seen and repaired lots of these and this sounds like your problem. Best of Luck
