My 2002 vw tdi smokes white and has no power


If the vehicle engine got overheated it is possible the head of the engine is cracked, or the intercooler is leaking, depending on the colour of the smoke low fuel pump pressure,
hope this helps.

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.

Under my vw beetle there is something leaking...its coming frm that silver thing i guess its like the muffler or something


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Is it a water like leak on the tip of the muffler? If it is, then there's no need to worry. During cold start ups there really is a moisture build up on the muffler tip and it tends to leak on the floor. This is a sign that you still got a good engine for if it doesn't have moisture on start up, then that's a sign that the engine is about to fail.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I just bought a 2002 VW Beetle in perfect shape! Looks and runs great..but smells like a box of crayons! I've been reading online and found out this is a common VW problem. I like the car enough to try to...


That's just the way it goes, I guess. If others are having the problem, then it may be just something that one has to get used to, short of spraying other scents or deodorizers in the cabin to get rid of the smell, apparently, at least.

2002 Beetle - starts but won't keep running.


it could be a bad fuel pump, crank position sensor, broken/misaligned timing belt, etc. basically you need spark, fuel, and air to make the engine run. also the timing belt needs to be not broken and aligned properly.

Gas smell


your brand new 1972 VW beetle may have as simple hole in the fuel line..when the car is not running you will not see any gas leaks becuase there is no call for gas to be fed to the motor.

have someone, or yourself crawl under the vehicle and look fort a small dripping or small stream of fuel.....REMEMBER!!!!!!!!!...gas is HIGHLY explosive and flammable...no smoking while checking/working on the rpoblem...and fuel's smell comes from Naptha, a chemical added to oil to make gasoline, it is a very strong ordor..a small amount can smell like a gallon.
hope this helps you

2002 VW Beetle non Turbo automatic


Idle compensation is not correct due to one or more of the following; Bad/clogged air filter, vacuum leak, EGR valve, PCV valve, head gasket leaking, bad gas, water in fuel, fouled plugs, 02 sensors need replaced, locked torque converter, etc. These have not been listed in order of expense; just as they come to mind...accordianman
