2001 bug turbo but she just cant speed

I have a 2001 vw beetle. 3 days ago my car had some problems it wouldn't accelerate. i would turn my car off, wait and turn it back on. i looked online and some people said it could be a blown fuse or low oil. i checked both. i was a little low on oil but not enough to do damage. i put more oil in too. and still my car will not go.. yes it is a stick but i know it is not my clutch because i have no problem shifting. it just wont go. can any one help and please dont tell me to go to the dealers. i do have a code reader and there was two codes 1: P1542pd and P1171pd.

Looks like the throttle body problem , one unit with build in sensors.
If you had a bad battery or it went dead and you had to jump you vehicle , the settings might be gone.
If that's the case you need to do throttle body adaptation and it should take care of it.(Any time throttle looses power , settings are gone)
Actually you can try adaptation anyway , and see if it helps.If not - new throttle body.
Adaptation might be performed by diagnostic tool only. I think many shops are capable of doing it now.

2000 vw bug having problems


Sounds like possible block in catalyst or broken up and blocked catalyst or oxygen sensor fault causing fuel/air mixture confusion if you take first o2 sensor out of exhaust manifold/pipe and see if performance back then this will confirm blockage although will be slightly noisy while testing cos sensor removed.

2001 VW Beetle Will not start


Hi.
Check the heavy duty cables from the battery to the starter motor and solenoid and also the battery earthing (grounding?) - there terminals could be corroded / burned.

Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at all. Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D
