I tried to drive this morning and I almost didn't make it to my destination. Yesterday there was a burning smell, but I thought it might be dry leaves on the manifold or something like that. This morning it was losing power and didn't want to stay in an idle.
My check engine light is on and my car does not want to idle. on 2002 Volkswagen Beetle

ANSWER by lynnwood on December 06, 2011
Throttle body issues are very common. It would require communicating with the computer and then manually going in that direction and diagnosing properly. Give us a call to schedule at 425-771-4588 Jeff's Auto Repair
Ok, it started out not idling when it was cold and then after it warmed up it would not start after letting it set for approx. 30 min. to 1 hr, so I replaced the fuel filter since it has 75,000 mil...
