Check the fuel lines, are they corroded/perished/rusty. If so, they might be crusty inside which means clogged lines and check the fuel filter too, as that is a cheap option.

If you still aren't getting fuel or sporadic fuel to the engine, then a new pump will be needed. They are simple to change, but are the costly option.

Fuel pump reset on a 2000 volkswagon bettle


there is nothing in the trunk that effects the fuel pump. it's under the back seat. check the fuse with an ohm meter first. if that is good you can remove the back seat ( only the bottom part ) and listen for a hum when you try to start the car, that would be the fuel pump. if you hear it then the problem is not the pump. replace the fuel filter. hope this helps.

My 2002 Volkswagen beetle starts to accelerate and then slowly loses power and then will not accelerate past 20. We had a bad alternator that had to be replaced but no one can figure out why it keeps...


It might not be getting enough fuel due to a dirty fuel filter, air filter or a failing fuel pump. I'd try a new fuel filter & air filter first then check out the pressure on the fuel pump. You may also have injector problems.
Good luck.

An estimate for repair cannot be accurately made based upon this limited amount of information. The clunk could be caused by a number of different causes from bad fuel injectors, transmission in need of servicing to loose or broken engine mounts. Sorry, more information is necessary to render a qualified opinion. Correct year - 2000 ??, current mileage ??, vehicle history regarding accidents and/or maintenance, etc.

1999 Volkswagon beetle turbo diesel injection pump


Was any work just done to this car? Timing belt? It is rare that these pumps go bad but I have seen a few shell out. If you are not familiar with the ALH diesel engine I would not try to replace it. You should take it to a shop that specializes in VW's.
