Depending on condition, location, mechanical condition, and features, right around $4000 private party sale. This is based on excellent condition of the vehicle. Now those Tdi are great little engines and will continue to run for a long time if properly maintaned.

1999 vw Beetle goes dead while driving replace battery and alternator still doing it no battery light comes on

Is The battery charging when the engine is running? The voltage at the battery should be close to 14 volts DC when the engine is running at about twice the idle speed. If it is then it may be worth checking that your regulator/Rectifier has failed.

The 1999 VW Bug I own kept overheating. It won't hold compression to keep running. Mechanic says needs new engine. Worth it to fix?

I kind of depends on how you feel about it-did he tell you what the compression readings were? Are they all low, or just one cylinder? Is the reason top end (valves) or rings (bottom end)-he should know these numbers and why if he is recommending engine replacement. you don't say how many miles, and you know the car's maintenance history, but if regular oil changes have not been done, if it has been badly overheated, it may be the only thing you can do. A second opinion never hurts especially if he cannot say what compression numbers are, or if the valves or rings are the cause of low compression.

And it depends on the cost-a used engine can be installed, but you have to decide if it is worth the cost of the engine, installation and down time. Consider the value of your car-you can go onto used car websites and get a valuation number for your car by plugging in condition, miles, etc to determine it's worth. Subtract from that number the cost of installing a new engine and you have an idea of what your car is worth right now-probably not alot as I'd guess the cost of a used engine and installation would run from a low of $1200 to as much as $2000 and your car is worth about $3-3500. You could buy an inexpensive car to get you by while you look for a good used engine, and locate a shop to do the install, then sell the beater car when you are back on the road with your Beetle.

1999 vw beetle timing belt broke. i started it immediatly after this happened. did i bend a valve? and is it worth repairing

All engines for 1999 Beetle are interference engines, so yes you probably bent a valve. Not knowing much about your car, model, equipment, condition and mileage I can't really tell you if it's worth repairing. It just depends on how much damage was done. I would get a couple of estimates from reputable repair shops and compare that to the value of the car. If the car is in otherwise great shape and the repair bill isn't too high I would consider fixing it. Use the link below to figure out the value of the car.

Grand prix has a 3.1 6cyl. and 166000 mile, it blow white smoke

Sorry to inform you of the bad news but the white smoke is engine coolant burning off and the rough running condition is also associated with coolant leaking into the combustion chambers.This will be a head gasket repair, basically a head job where you will need to machine the heads down and install new gaskets from the heads up.Get back to me if you have any more questions, thanks and I hope I could help!!!

The Beetles are basically good vehicles. What engine do you have? If you take good care of it you should get lots of fun driving from it. Where are you located?? I might be able to recommend a shop if I knew where you were.
