Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
Purchased a used 1998 beetle. Engine replaced due to engine light being on and burning up the engine. Recent engine replaced and drove car for about 2 hours 80 miles and check engine light came on. Car is not parked. What is up with the engines not working, check engine light is on, what is the problem?
Didn't you get warranty on the previous engine? Even used engines these days get a warranty from their respective agencies. Also like Lee has quoted in his answer about error codes, you could brief us up on what all the areas of problem were in the first place. Next time ensure you avail warranty while buying parts, whether new or used.

What code is it?? If your replacement engine is doing the very same thing the old one did...overheating, The problem is most likely the radiator or something besides the engine. When you replaced the engine, did you do it or did a shop take care of it? If a shop did it, they should have checked the condition of the radiator. 50% of the engine replacements that I do, I end up replacing the radiator because that was where the problem initially started.
