diesel beetle 2001 automatic shutters anytime its under a load. Could it be torque converter? It seems to shift fine.

Problem occurs at every startup. The dealer wanted to recharge the AC, but that is a joke, as the AC is plenty cold once the compressor kicks in. 5 to 7 minutes is an unacceptable delay, as we are hot and sweaty by the time we get cool air from the AC. Thanks!

Thank you so much. Replaced fuel filter, got info on fuel relay & other fuel related. Taking one step at a time. Did take to a mechanic, his first suggestion was replacing the ignition & key at a cost of $1-3,000. I dont see where the problem points to this. Could it be a key problem? I lost the origianl ignition key and have been using a spare key. I see from this website that this could be a problem on other model vehicles. Thanks again.

my oil was leaking and I took it into the mechanic. He did some re-sealing but said if continues to leak that it will need housing replacement. Is this something that I can find used or is it best to let him get the part for lots of $$?
