Volkswagen Beetle QuestionsRefine by vehicle
my beetle was siting for about a year in my garage but now that I put on new spark plugs and new batteries it starts but not for long, I start the car but in a few moments the car stops ruining. I started the car again now it only cranks what do I do can anyone help me?
I have three cooliant leaks, under the resivoir, under the flange and one toward the front under the clean air filter ( i think) , I have been patching and running coolant through the system on 5-10 minute drives trying to pinpoint any other issues before i make a move on parts. if its from that corner, is it a gasket issue?
A brief, almost goose-like honk sounds off intermittently when the engine is idling for more than about 5 minutes ... was told maybe a belt ... ja?
replaced starter, new battery, new speed sensor. After sitting 2 days, car has to be jump started. Maybe needs alternator or coil or a relay?
This just happen today; the car will not start. My car s keyless
I just bought this Beetle and it was sitting for atleast a year and a half. I replace the fuel filter and I cannot get this car running. When it does start it has a very inconsistent idle. Could this be bad gas from sitting? Any help would be great.
Car was running fine. Made a quick stop when I got back in car won't go over 15mph. ?..
The light will come on and off something, so I was wondering if I need to add.
disconnected the ground on the battery to clear the code. drove approximately 15 miles and thats when the low oil warning light came on ! the check eng light never came back on. it has oil in it but not running right. Please tell me, if I just need to drain the oil, change the filter. Or anything else that might help. the oil looks fine. just darkish and dirty.

Coming home from an errand I drove the car onto the driveway. Stopped while garage door is opening. Put the car into first gear, drove into the garage and stopped. Now I can't get it out of 1st gear. This never happened before. Clutch was replaced 12,000 miles ago.

My car w/49,000 miles on it stalled driving 60 mph on the highway -- towed to VW - there for a week couldn't figure out why it stalled. Happened a 2nd time with 70K miles on it - now they tell me I need a new fuel pump.. anyone else with this issue? VW dealership quoted over $900 to replace fuel pump. Call a few other import repair shops and they were in the $500 range. Outrageous.
My lights come on when I start the car which I like is this common in 2008?
airbag light always on
My drivers/passenger door cylinders quit working and I replaced them. That left me with three keys for my car: d/p door key, trunk key, and ignition key. Now the the driver's door actuator (I think) has failed as that door can not be locked but the key will still turn the cylinder and lock the other door. That's primarily why I want to go to a fob that can unlock all three doors. How do I do that?
ok when I hit the brakes, the is all over the place but its not the brake
There were no signs before going out to find my car would not start. Can eventually get the engine to start if the key is held in the first position, listen for the clicks, before actually starting it. Then when driving it to repair, the dash was going bonkers. They did a diagnostic and nothing came up. Thought a critter got in the engine (signs of a feast of nut shells) but after checking all the wires, all is still in good condition.
