Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle
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.
Will it shut off or just rev? if just shuts off it could be a grounded turbo shaft,bad mass air sensor.remove intake pipe to turbo then check for play or for froze up turbo compressor wheel by moving the comp wheel,check for excess play each way,<>^

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.
