Question about 2002 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo S

3 Answers

2002 Volkswagen Beetle Diesel

We have a check engine light on for 2 months, shop said EGR valve was bad. I flushed and changed oil but no change.

Now today we have slow acceleration and low power.

The shop wanted 1300.00 for repair Is the EGR valve that hard to remove?

    I have the same problem with my 2002 VW TDI but the difference is that sometimes the check engine light doesn't come on and my beetle runs fine. It's like the turbo drops out and a govenor is in effect. Even while running @ 75 mph on the interstate turn the car off and back on and this resets the computer for your speed to resume with no govenor. I've been doing this for 6 mos + and would like a fix. I have a choice of 2 VW shops in my town and I've been screwed by both so my car isn't going in to be fixed unless I go to another city and have it fixed. Please let me know what you find.....

    The check engine light cane on. I took it to a shop, they couldn't find a thing wrong with the car. They some how turned the check engine light out. They drove the car 80 miles over the next to days and the light stayed off. I picked the car up, drove it all day long. Went to the gas station to fill it up for the trip home, got back in the car drove maybe 2 miles and the engine light cane back on. Could it have anything to do with the gas cap? I went and bought a new gas cap, the light has never gone off. Any ideas to the problem?

I don't think that's the EGR valve that the shop is talking about for that kind of dollar figure. More likely the injectors or injector pump....accordianman

Something I just had done was to replace my intake manifold and heat exchanger. It was so clogged it srunk from a baseball sized hole to about the circum. of a dime. It was sucking away my power. If you get it cleaned about every 30,000 km. then you will probably not have to clean it. I just had it changed at about 190,000 km.

Just stumbled into this, potentially having problems with a stuck EGR valve on a 2002 Beetle Tdi. The valve comes integrated in a larger piece which seems to run about $200. Add in diagnose and labor and the fresh gasket, but that still should not add up to $1200 imho. It better not be that for me!
Why I reacted here was because you wrote: " I flushed and changed oil but no change." What made you think that would have any effect at all? EGR has nothing to do with oil. It is the controlled feedback of some exhaust gas back into the intake to reduce NOx gas emmision. Cheers, Hein

How do i replace the egr valve sensor


The Vehicle would only stop, if the EGR stuck open,momentary at low speed,and dumped too much exhaust into the intake. The entire EGR Valve ,if bad, needs to be changed. The sensor is part of it. Have her find a good shop or a friend do it at home. Pretty easy.
I served in Viet Nam-so take it slow,and be safe

My change oil light came on 2 months ago now my check engine light came on today.is it because I have not changed the oil yet?


Why havent you changed the oil?? going past that recommendation is not helping the engine, plus you need to use only a GM approved oil, usually synthetic. The CK Eng light has nothing to do with oil.

More than likley it is bad and needs to be replaced, but you could try to clean it. Sometimes they get carbon deposits stuck in them keeping them from closing or opening.

Engine will not idle, stalls at stop lights etc - EGR code


To me if the engine will not idel and stall once you have stopped, that points to an IAC (Idle Air Control sensor) which is located on your throttle body.  The part is very easy to get to and changes out pretty quickly.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

Check gauges and Check Engine Lights


The sending unit for the oil guage will cause the oil guage to fluctuate this is caused from some sludge build up that is more than likely stuck in the sending unit tube. Use Gunk motor flush on your next oil change this should help the oil guage problem.( make sure you read the direction on the back of the bottle)
As for the check engine light you can take it to Auto Zone and have them scan the computer. Sometimes the EGR valve will build up with carbon causing the valve to stick slightly open which will make the idle on the car fluctuate up and down. Its also possible you need O2 sensors.

Low oil compression


if the needle is on or around the letter N then thats normal. you can also change the oil sending unit. as far as the engine light once you change the EGR valve and the EPT sensor the engine light should go off
