Water from the tailpipe is good. This indicates a well running engine. The groan when turning could be due to a loose serpentine belt or a power steering pump in need of help. Does it have oversize wheels and tires? It could be hitting the fender cowling.

Why do i get oil coming out of exhaust pipe on 1968 vw

horizontally opposed 4 stroke air-cooled engine with the exhaust coming out of the bottom of the cylinders. Unless the engine is smoking a lot don't worry. If it does, the oil scraper rings on the piston may be worn or broken, or you need a rebore.

Rear end groan

similar problems occur with Subaru AWD systems, the problem might be the centre diff, or a rubbing mudflap, or you have put the wrong aspect ratio tyres on and the drive system is complaining.

Water on floor of backseat of 1999 vw beetle

Hi George, It sounds as if the the sun roof drain pipes are blocked. There should be four and the are fitted into the roof pillars draining downwards at each corner. A flexible rod can sometimes be used to clear blockages, but care should be taken not to damage the rubber hoses. Regards John

Need toknow how to gain acces to change the front left turn signal bulb on my 2004 VW Convertible.

If your Beetle is a "Turbo S", the whole front clip (bumper facia) has to come off.

For all other Beetle models:
Remove the screw cap at the rear of the front turn/marker lense.
Remove the screw
Pull the lamp assembly forward
Disconnect the electrical connector
Twist the lamp socket to remove it from the lamp assembly
Remove the bulb
Reverse procedure to install

Engine malfunction warning light on,noticed black fluid of some kind coming from exhaust pipe? nissan almera 01 reg. driving fine,no unusual noise ect.

Have some one scan your car for diagnostic trouble codes. There is an emmision control fault that should be taken care of or it could lead to further problems. The fluid coming out of the tailpipe is normal. Gasoline has a certain percentage of water in it and what doesn't get evaporated comes out the taipipe.

Dash noise from VW Beetle

Must be a bad front wheel bearing. Does the pitch change as you speed up and slow down?

This seems to be a classic case of "disentegrating exhaust system syndrome." There is either a hole(s) somewhere in your exhaust system or there is a leak somewhere. Probably the easiest way to tell where the noise is coming from is to start your car and just listen around in the engine bay, under the car, and at the muffler. Also do a visual inspection of the exhaust system to see if you can see any holes in the piping. I have also seen hairline cracks in the exhaust header itself that can cause the loud ticking noise that can be a little tricky to track down.
