1999 Volkswagen Cabrio QuestionsI was driving on the interstate and my car just shut off (1 answer)
I pulled over and parked, went to start it back up and it wouldn't start. I tried starting after it cooled down but still nothing. I have a full tank gas. All my fluids are good. And its not the battery. Any ideas?
Turned the engine on and the "check engine" light is on now. It's sometimes missing when i start from a stop. Do you suggest driving at a high speed to reset the engine light? Also how do you know if you need transmission fluid?
