Question about Volkswagen New Beetle

1 Answer

2000 Volkswagon Beetle. Won't climb hills like it used and then will "rap" out at higher speeds. RPMs will go between 5 and 6 at about 60 MPH, if I pull over turn the engine of wait a second then turn it back on it's fine. Transmission? Sensor?

Losing power going up hills


sounds pretty normal. what speed do you try out the passing gear? anything above 35-45 mph and it will feel like neutral. Passing gear is actually only 1st gear. When you press down the pedal, it forces the transmisson to shift into low gear.

Very common for the coil pack to fail on this model, also the plugs are a pain to change and are often left, try these first.

With normal acceleration the 1st to second shift point should be around 2500-3000 rpm. Most of your shifts under moderate acceleration will take place at this same point or when there a light load on the transmission. Under hard acceleration the RPMs will climp higher due to increased power needs and the computer will shift when less power is needed or the RPMs climb to an unsafe speed say5000-6000rpms (depending on where yours redlines). Also going up a steep hill will raise the RPMs higher and goind down a hill will cause a faster shift at lower RPMs. These can always be altered by an individual owner by adjusting shift points, using performance parts and if you have problems (low tranny fluid/trans issues). Your trans RPMS are fine and will vary depening on how your foot accelerates. The shift pattern should be the same every time you drive slow/medium/fast/, look for changes in those patterns you will also catch a problem early.

Engine will not idle down


Hi have a nice day!
Your model is equipped with Vehicle Speed Sensor System.
I think it would be better to take it to an authorized service station to check it's operation.
