Check the resistances of the coils, check both hot and cold, If you have a greater variaton on one of the coils then the other change that coil. The reasoning does not always have to make sense. Logically the coil would be weaker the warmer the engine was due to heat increasing resistance. however it could be the cause without that being the reason. After decades in the field nothing would surprise me anymore, but those cars do have weak coils

How do I change the spark plugs on a 2000 Beetle.


No special tools required. Spark plugs or glow plugs mount down into the engine from the top. Last resort - follow the wires. Be careful when changong the plugs such that you don't break any of the wires. The wires are somewhat expensive, and break easily.

2000 vw passat 1.8t wont start


First make sure you do a basic tune-up on the car i.e. replacing spark plug wires, spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor button, etc. Secondly, the plugs are probably just wet from fuel from not starting. The low oil pressure light coming on is normal when trying to start the car. Make sure to check for codes too and don't press the accelerator when starting the car, otherwise it will flood the engine.
