2002 VW Beetle non Turbo automatic

Car just won't stay cranked up. When you crank it, you have to have your foot on the gas to keep it idled and the other foot on the brakes to change gears or it will go dead. What's going on?

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

How do i find the turbo in a 2002 vw beetle

Are you sure it has one? And do you know what a turbo charger looks like? If you follow the air intake back from the breather (air filter) it will be the device that is round on both ends with a square block in the center that has an oil supply line going in the top and usuly a steal tube that dumps the the oil back to the crank case.

Jeep 2002 grand cherokee dies unless i keep foot on the gas...

The idle relearn needs reset. Keep your foot on the gas at about 900 rpm. Make it idle for about 5-6 minutes. Slowly ease up on the gas until it will idle on it's own, it might take a while. After you get it to idle, it might be idling real low, but on its own, Let it sit and idle until for 20 minutes. After that it should be back to normal. You will have to do this every time you have the battery unhooked for a while.

My 2002 VW Beetle (not turbo) after charging battery won't run

Hopefully you are using the same ignition key you had before to start the car. This flip module mhas a chip that tells the system you have the proper key. If for some unknown reason the system lost this program it is probably a dealer only problem. The chip is inside the fob right near the key itself.

Check engine light

You can try to google "Mouse Meat Inc". The owner, Earl, he knows everything about VW. You can try to give him a call or contact with him, he will tell you how to solve your problems. I had him fix my car before and ever since then my beetle is problem free. He's the one you want to talk to, he's way better than any dealers. He's located in Tacoma, WA, if it's not anywhere near you, he can even try to hook you up with someone he knows that's close to your location. Definetely give him a call!
