I was in a minor wreck last week. I had to have some front body work done and a new radiator put in. When I picked the vehicle up the check engine light came on. The guy there unhooked the battery and


You'll need to have someone scan the computer to get the trouble codes to proceed.
Most auto parts stores will scan for free in hopes of selling you some parts. The codes only tell the mechanic what to test, not what to replace.

Hi R,
If I understand correctly the sound you're describing could be something known as 'pinking' It occurs when the ignition timing is too far advanced and can damage the engine. Make sure that you're using the correct octane rated fuel in your vehicle and thereafter take it for a tune. Whoever does it, should set the timing at 10 degrees BTDC. To set the timing correctly, open the diagnostic socket in the engine compartment which when standing facing the front of the car will be on your right and the vehicles left. Open up the cover and bridge between T and E1 (A small directory is inside the same cover, which will help you find the correct connections) Only when the bridge is connected can the ignition timing be set correctly. This should be carried out with a strobe timing light with the engine running.

#1 cylinder location on 1968 volkswagon bug


As you are looking at it from the front of the vehicle, the firing order works from LEFT to RIGHT, 1-2-3-4-.

You don't have a distributor per se, but rather an ignition coil with 4 wires.

I hope this helps good luck

2005 relay turn key some time start ,some time no start


I don't know if this will solve your problem but my daughter-in-laws 2005 Relay was having a similar problem with starting, sometimes it would start, other times you would have to keep cranking the vehicle. I went under the front hood and opened up the fuse and relay box on the left side of the engine. There is a ignition relay in which I took out and cleaned the contact pins with Scotch-brite because the pins looked like there was some build up on them. It has been over a week now and the vehicle has started every time on the first try.

1999 VW Bug Service engine Light


When you say water light comes on, do you mean coolant level, or coolant temp or ? Check coolant level and top off if needed. Bring the Beetle to a parts store, most offer free check of check eng. light. They will plug a hand held scan tool into the cars diagnostic port (usually located under the dash) and 'read' stored engine codes in the cars computer. They can tell you what the codes mean, and suggest what to do. If you have further questions, post them here along with the code numbers.
