First check transmission fluid. If you have a lot of miles its a good idea to change fluid and filter. Also the fluid in rear end. Hope this helps and have a good day.

Just serviced my legacy b4. Had to take the battery off to get to coils, checked these and theyre working. Idols roughly. Coughs also. No power when tried to drive. Any ideas please?


Thank you for the inquiry.
Sounds like you may have a non-connection on one of your spark plug wires or the ignition coils. Certainly would explain the lack of power and and rough idling or running.
You will also want to confirm you haven't rotated any wires. See illustration for firing order: 92759554.gif

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
