Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

A/C air sometimes cold, sometimes not on VW Beetle 2001 Turbo

The compressor seems to come on and a/c always cold when used during spring/winter/late fall when temp isn't so hot in Texas. It seems that as outside temp gets hotter, a/c air randomly switches blowing cold air to hot air...time intervals vary too as it can be cold for a few minutes, then hot for 10 minutes, switch to cold for 4 minutes, etc.

AC will not work with temps are cold even when it is turned on. The air is colder cause the temp is colder. The AC cycles in hot weather because the AC charge is low and needs recharging. You will know this if you open the hood run the AC and you will hear the clicking sound of the AC compressor magnetic clutch. You can recharge it easily buy buying a compatible can of refrigerant. I suggest buying the kit with the gage so you don't overcharge the system which will cause freeze ups

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.

2002 Beetle 1.8 Turbo A/C quit blowing cold


You would have to measure the pressure to determine if it's pressurized correctly. The compressor won't run if it's low.
What happens when you push the a/c button? Can you hear/feel the compressor kick in? It seems like in most cases it's the compressor itself or the compressor clutch that goes. It's way too common in vw's...

Check the battery fuse box,, they are faulty and do not hold up to amps needed to run both fans when a/c is on... I had same problem and VW expert took a full 2 minutes to figure out since it's a very common problem... dealer only part, but you can replace it in 5 minutes... (if you look under fuses, you should see some partial melting of area where fuse contacts go in,,tell tale sign your box has failed)....
