I have a 02 vw new beetle 1.8 check engine light came, hesitant , read the codes it had P0171 and error code P3211. I cleared them then car died and will not start help

Error P0171 is System too lean, bank 1. Your engine is being starved of fuel. Could be anything from a clogged fuel line to a faulty injector. You must have mistyped the second code as it doesn't exist.

My 2001 VW Beetle started losing speed when I go up a hill, and when I try to excellerate, it bogs down worse and the check engine light flashes off and on.

you sound like your catylitic converter is trying to stop up. When this happens check and have someone race the engine and fill and see if you have a good flow of exhaust coming out of your tail pipe and see if it is real hot .A good way is if it happens at night look at yourn converter and see if its red from the converter to the engine thats a sure sign thats your converter is stopped up.If its not then if the light stays on go to an advance store or some other place and they wont charge you to check and tell you what the obd 2 code is and post that back and let me know what the code is .Hope This Helps

Check Engine Light see codes below

P0171 is LEAN and P0303 is misfire number 3 cyl. Its time to stop guessing and pay for a correct diagnosis. Find a shop that works on VW and has the tools to work on it. DO NOT put those Bosch Platinum Spark plugs in that Ottozone tries to sell everybody.

I have a 2001 VW bug and the engine light has came on and is give this code P0171 bank1 to lean

O2 Sensor - on bank1
Now, just because you get a code for that sensor,while it may need to be replaced,it may also have set a code,because of a vacuum leak or an engine misfire,and the O2 Sensor ,then went out of range,and not necessarily bad
Do not throw parts at it
Have it properly diagnosed and properly repaired..

Check engine lite is on 2005 volkswagen beetle

whenever this check light is turned on a fault code for the problem that caused the powertrain control module (computer controller) to turn on the check engine light sets a fault code in its memory, this code is key to finding the problem, u can have the system checked for free by any Kragen, Autozone or other discount parts store like them, get the code(s) and post them back here and we will try and give you the answer to what is wrong.

Code PO 238 on 2001 VW Beetle where do i start

The P0238 code relates to a Turbo Boost sensor pressure High. The P0106 is a MAP sensor code and could be caused by a bad or loose hose to the MAP sensor and can cause the P0171 which is system to lean code. The P0297 is a vehicle overspeed code. Hope this helps you some.
