Question about 2002 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo S

1 Answer

Hello, I have a 2002 VW turbo with yellow and black seats and yellow wheels; I love it. But, it has 91000 miles on it and the check engine light stays on. My mechanic (who is not a vw specialist) says it needs major work...something about these models at around 100,000 miles. He estimates the cost of repair of about $8,000, which I agree with my husband is rather ridiculous to invest in this car at this point. Without knowing more details, can you shed any light on thid problem. Also the door locks don't automatically unlock AGAIN and in cold weather I have to race to the trunk lid once I pop the switch. If I don't get to the lid soon enough it locks again.

You can go to an auto parts store and with there hand held scanner then can tell you why the check engine light is lit, the lock/unlock sounds like a relay problem, Do they work when buttons are pushed? If so, perhaps need to be re-programmed. Hope this helped Tim

2000 VW new Beetle uses a lot of oil, but has no leaks, oil fouls sparkplugs


Do you have the turbo model? If so you could have a bad turbo. You may also have bad valve seals or piston rings. If you have a turbo you can remove the hose or pipe off of the outlet side of your turbo between the turbo and the intake manifold. If there is oil in it your turbo is leaking and will need repaired.

2002 corolla (now 91000 miles) makes rattling sound


Thats good that you are getting a second opinion. A Toyota dealer will be able to check it and see what the noise may be. See what they come up with. I dont think a worn timing chain or guides would cause a low oil pressure problem. But, if it does indeed have low oil pressure, that is a serious problem.
