If it is a TURBO, it would say on the Trunk and it would be the 1.8 liter engine
If it is not, it is a 2.0 liter engine, if you pop open the hood and read the Data Plate, it will tell you there also. The data plate is located on the Passenger Side, just above the Radiator. If it is the 2.0 liter engine, it sill say Displacement 1984 cc (rounded up to 2000 cc or 2.0 Liter Engine)

When you open the hood, there should be a label, usually on the underside of the hood that will indicate the engine size. Engine size is measured in liters and with the beetle you will see either a 1.8L or 2.0L if it's gas or a 1.9L if it's diesel. Below is a generic example of what the label might look like. Look next to the displacement.

Problem with door control module. Or somehting VW calls the comfort control. My sister-in-law and her friend both have 2000 and 20001 Beetle's and this happened to them. My father has a 2004 Golf and his is acting up. As they get worse the door lock will malfunction. and sometimes the trunk lock and light in trunk will go out. Along with the alarm . The switch costs around $250-$300 before labor. I think it's a dealer only item.

It could either be the engine speed sensor or the fuel injection pump. When this happened to me, ofcourse I was in the middle of nowhere. The fuel injection pump needed replacing. To do this they had to also time it... I let vw do this one reluctantly.

If this is an automatic transmission the modulator valve could be bad, if not, there is nothing to do but a rebuild. (OUCH!) If it is a manual transmission, a clutch, pressure plate and through-out bearing replacement and your done. The pressure plate could be resurfaced. Lot Less (ouch.)
