Re: 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

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.
COULD BE WATER IN FUEL.DRAIN WATER FROM FUEL FILTER BY THE DRAIN PLUG UNDER FUEL FILTER REPLACE FUEL FILTER.IF ENGINE STILL STALL OUT PROBLEM COULD BE THE FUEL INJECTION PUMP.THAT WOULD BE A DEALERSHIP FIX.
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.
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.
this is not good; you probably ran the turbo bearings dry and they have seized try to loosen the turbo by removing it breaking it loose and lubricating the bearings if they are still good or, find another one at the junkyard
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!
