First check all wires for any thing loose.
The muffler blowing up leads me to think the engine is so far out of time the PCM cant correct it.

REally you need to get it to a good mechanic.

Car overheated one day the fine the next but no


your heat is not working becuase the coolant level is too low meaning your heater core is full of air. the reason your car overheated is because the water pump impeller splines are gone and you need to replace the water pump. it is driven by the timing belt so replace that too. and the tensioner. this is the number one cause of vw overheating, especially on a diesel. i have replaced about 50 water pumps on this engine because of this.

Overheated and won't start up


if it wont crank, you will need to have the concern diagnosed with a scan tool. preferably a vw scan tool at the dealer. the reason it overheated is becuase the water pump impeller is broken or stripped out and is free-wheeling on the pump shaft.

Overheating problem


water pump. water pump. water pump. i am a vw dealer tech and on 2.0 and 1.8t beetles the water pump impeller is plastic, and what happens is usually another component, fans, fan control module (under battery tray), thermostat, fails and because the impeller is plastic with just one overheat the plastic becomes brittle and shatters, pull the water pump out and you will see the impeller in 3 or 4 pieces. replace water pump and make sure t stat opens, fans come on (a/c off) and proper water pump flow.
