Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
IT could be something simple like a failed sensor.
it sounds like it may be just an O2 sensor, easy fix. it just tells the computer how rich or lean the engine is burning fuel. (Air vs. Fuel mixture, how much gas to add to how much air.) it also could be a faulty Mass Airflow sensor, which monitors how much air is being sucked into the intake, also telling the computer how much gas to add.
the difference between the 2 is that the O2 sensors are located on the exhaust pipe, usually one before and after the catalytic converter and sometimes one is located in or near the exhaust manifold. this may be the problem because they go bad all the time, and are directly related to emissions. the mass airflow sensor can be the problem if engine is making a slight rev on it's own. the MAF sensor is located on the throttle port just before the intake plenum or manifold. it should be a small black plastic part with a wire harness leading to it.Also check the catalytic converter if sensors checked out ok.so the possibilities to be checked are :-- the CC, it can be one of 2 sensors. Either the Mass Airflow Sensor, or the pre-catalyst O2 sensor. You can narrow it down more by scanning the car's computer for codes. There are some places who do it for free
