air filter where is it and dose it have a cabin filter do not find nowhere please advise

I recently unplugged the battery of my car and pluged them back on within a 10 minute interval, and now as soon as i turn the car aon, the engine shacks a lot but as i keep it on for a bit longer it starts to calm down. 10 minutes later, I shift from Park to Drive and start driving off, once I hit 3000RPM, the car stops moving but the engine keeps going. 5 seconds later, it kicks again and starts moving again. It repeats itself every 2 minutes. What could this be?

The starter won't turn on. There is a full battery charge. The starter has 250,000 miles and 22 years of use. How much should we expect to pay to have it replaced?

The engine whistles (loudly, can be heard a block away) & only stops when in drive (or reverse) and accelerating. If coasting or at stop the noise continues.

What is a rough estimate if only the the linkage needs repairing?

the motor starts up but immediately stalls????

So, I am having major issues with my 2001 VW beetle. Over the past 3 years, I have replaced the mass air sensor, coolent temp. sensor, knock sensor (twice within 3 years), timing belt, belt tensioner, roller, break caliber- front, and 4 coils. I'm sure there are more parts, I just can't remember them.
My car is acting up once again-- by the way, the second knock sensor and the 4 coils were replaced this past week. My mechanic is blaming on a "bad coincidence" that I picked up my car from his shop last night, drove it twice and then it wouldn`t start. It won`t even turn over, but the lights and radio are working fine, so it is not the battery. The mechanic is saying it is my starter that has gone out now. I have about 134,000 miles on it.
I don`t know what to do. Should I believe him? Is it really just a coincidence that this all happens with a new mechanic and all within 2 weeks? How much does a starter cost? I have already paid him over $700 for the coils and knock sensor.'.

Everytime I brake, I hear this grinding noise and then when I release the brake slowly, I hear it again. Now my question is should I get my brakes checked out as soon as possible or is it just fine for now? Because it seem to do that for a while and nothin was wrong with my brakes.

my '99 vw jetta will not turn over lights come on and every thing but no starter kick nothing...help

how can i change the heater core

how to fix a rear strut that ripped out from the top

Why is there such a huge descrepancy in the repair estimate: from 300 to 600 dollars?

Does $602.88 to replace the fuel pump seem to be the right pricing?

tail lights, brake lights work but turn signal don't. Fuses are ok.

The problem just happened out of the blue, if you manually push the break pedal forward the lights will go off but otherwise the brake lights are continually on.

How much of a difference would there be in pricing if I have already bought the alternator to replace the old one with? Would it be cheaper to do that or to just let the mechanics do it all?

Engine heat is pouring into the cab of my car when I turn the fan vent ON for anything. It pours right by any air conditioning, fresh air, etc...making for a miserably hot ride. What up?When the fan vents are OFF, the heat seeps through, as you can feel it on your hand if placed over any vent. Please do not direct me to a nearby Volkswagon dearlership as I have had very bad experiences with aforementioned. I like a private mechanic, where they're willing to show me what they're doing, so I know what to do next time and to earn my trust! Thank you very much!

I have just started noticing a hesitation when taking off. I also have been hearing a rattle sound near the rear end of the car. The rattle will come and go and it sounds like the exhaust system, but not sure. Can anyone help point me in the right direction.

I just bought a 2002 New Beetle TDI. So new to me that its still on its way to my house via my boyfriend driving it. He is really good at fixing car problems once we know what the exact problem is. What I know is that according to the dealer that we bought the car from he had the transmission replaced but was still getting the code P0740. From what I have been able to find out this sounds like it is the ASV Stolenoid. Does this sound right. At lower speeds it shifts ok, not the greatest, but once it hits 4th it really has a hard time shifting. Is it ok to drive for another 430 miles until he gets it home to work on it or should we hire someone on the way to try and fix the problem. Also could it be related to relay 109 which I know can cause several errors and may be triggering this one. Any advice and help would be great in this matter. Thanks to all who are able to answer my question.

I have this 96 jetta GLS and it seems to be leaking water when I stop the car at the back side of the motor, I can see it but cant find where it is coming from any ideas?

My 4 1/2 year old battery recently died after the car sat for two weeks. I had the battery tested (ok) and charged. My Passat started immediately over the next few days. It then sat for 4-5 days and the battery was dead again.

I replaced the battery with a new one and the Passat started immediately as I drove it over three days. It then sat for four days. I started it and here's what happened: Normal dash lights come on, engine turns a bit, then nothing, then it barely started (all on one key turn). I drove it a few miles then parked for 30 minutes. Passat didn't start. I waited a few minutes and then the above repeated (on one key turn, engine turned barely, then silence, then barely started).

This all points me to the battery but what are the odds that the new battery dies so quickly? Is it the battery or is there something wrong in the car?

After you pull the emergency brake the brake stays deployed
