Hi in this situation you need a mechanic to look at it as running an engine without oil is going to seriously damage your engine theres no substitute for an expert pair of eyes in this situation .

1998 VW Beetle 5-speed trouble getting it in to reverse


I have a 1998 VW Beetle and when I first bought it, (used) shifting into first was the same action for shifting into reverse. They were so close I usually went into first when trying for reverse. I took it to a transmission shop and they replaced part of the shift linkage that is famous for wearing. It cost me maybe $60.00. Now she shifts like a new car.

98 VW Beetle Check Engine light


Could be a lot of things, take it to autozone. More than likely they can scan the code for you, they can't tell you exactly what is wrong but they can steer you in the right direction. Give them a call to see if they are able to scan the codes on your VW. Good luck.

When should the timing belt on a 1998 vw beetle 2.0 be changed?


60,000 miles. If the belt breaks it will be expensive to fix as it causes engine damage (bent valves).

P0411 Secondary Air Injection System Incorrect Flow Detected
The 4mm inside diameter vaccuum hose gets pinched between the lower intake manifold and the secondary air pump housing, flattening it over time.
Here's a link to the steps to fix yourself if you are mechanically inclined...

P1128 Long Term Fuel Trim Is Too Lean
It is very likely this code is coming up because of the vacuum hose as well.

VW Beetle not shifting properly, still after changing VSS


I WOULD TRY DISCONNECTING THE BATTERY FOR 5 MINUTES TO SEE IF THE COMPUTER WILL REVERT TO IT'S DEFAULT SETTINGS. IF YOU HAVE A CODE FOR THE RADIO, THEN RETRIEVE IT BEFORE YOU DISCONNECT THE BATTERY. HOPE THIS HELPS. THANK YOU FOR USING FIX-YA. BEST OF LUCK. AND THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR AN HONEST RATING.
