Beetle looses power, stalls etc.

Have added fuel injector cleaner, change gas, and still have this problem. Has anyone else had this problem or have any ideas. Was thinking about changing 02 sensor.

The best thing to do is have the car scanned. This will identify any electrical issue that might be causing this. The ignition coils on the gas engines seem to fail from time to time. This could also be the mass air sensor.

I test drove a VW Beetle 2000 Automatic, car in good condition but when I made a U-turn the engine stalled out! i had to re-start the car to proceed.
I am looking to buy this car, but concerned about this problem?
Any advise...I appreciate your input.

    We have had this same exact problem, after many changes etc. finally put in a new battery. Since then have had no problem.. It has been almost 2 months and still working fine. Worth a try!

1999 Pathfinder shuts off while running.

It could be one or all of 4 sensors. the MAF, the MAP or the idle position sensor or dirty fuel injectors. the fuel injectors can be cleaned with an over the counter fuel injector cleaner bottle that you pour in your tank.If these do not fix it, it will be the EGR valve or a vacuum leak to the EGR. Check the fuel injectors first by buying the cleaning product. then check for vacuum leaks around the Fuel injector housing. Buying some starting fluid and spraying it over the small hoses while the car is running will make the engine stall when the fumes from the starting fluid get into the system. then have it scanned again to more or less tell which sensor it is. it could very well work with the fuel injector cleaner.

2000 beetle will die at random times, and will not start for about 15 minutes!

this can be caused by a bad fuel filter or dirty injectors. try a bottle of fuel injector or fuel system cleaner in a tank of gas. i suggest lucas products which can be found at any parts store.
