How to replace the crankshaft position sensor? I can't seem to find a diagram online.

replace timingbelt & waterpump&thermostat

Bought a 2006 Volkswagen July 9th,2010. About a week after purchasing the vehicle the exhaust malfunction light came on. We took it to a service person and we replaced some part under the hood which any person could have replaced. HOweve the exhaust light came on after replacing that. Then, we took the car to a place that had a certified volkswagen service person who said the part could have been defective so we replaced it again. The light came on again. We took the vehicle to the certified service person 3 times afterwards and he could not find out what the problem was. We finally took the vehicle to a dealership in Va. and $1400.00 latter we got a new valve cover plus some other repairs. Four days latter and the light come on again. I am frustrated and don't know who to trust or believe. I thought dealerships had all the equipment to perform the test to determine what the problem is. The Volkswagen owner's manual is very vague and really offers no information but to take it to a dealer. Give me a break. I can't keep putting money into this used car. I could have bought a new car. Please any advise or information you can offer will be so much appreciated.

just bought the 2003 Vw beettle and love it, however we have a buzzer that comes on now and then not all the time, but no light indicators on. Then when we turn the lights on it becomes a constant buzz. Will go off and then come back on

/30/11- Driving home, on a highway over 40 mph, car was erratic as driving on ice, FRIGHTENING, would not stay in the lane, especially after hitting bumps. it was ok, as long as no bumps, I noticed yesterday, when I turned a sharp left, the car squealed, and the steering wheel kept going, did not return, was hard to return. 2002 new beetle with 147K miles, just replaced wheel bearings.

Used 2000 vw bug with 40,0000 miles for sale but it needs a new water pump and water is coming from the passangers bottom side of the car. Should I buy? What will it coast to fix this problem?

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.'.

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!

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

My engine won't turn over. It will crank as long as my husband sprays ether into it, but it dies as soon as the ether burns off.

My 1999 vw beetle started having what we thought were fuel problems. We replaced the fuel filter, relay and fuel pump. Now when I turn on the ignition, the pump kicks on but immediately shuts off.

the switch to my fan seems to be broken. my air conditioner is not working now. the switch turns but does make any air come out. the button below that for the air goes in but doesn't always turn the air on. Sme times it goes on but as i am driving just goes off.

The knob that controls both rear view mirrors and the heater for same just broke off. What's it going to cost to replace it? Thanks.

I don't know the diagnostic code for this car. It has over 130,000 miles and I really need my indicator lights repaired, please help.

How do I change the spark plugs in a 2003 VW Beetle?

Blew a serpentine belt,
put a new one one and car will not start. Odd, but fuel pump is no pumping fuel. Could broken belt hit something to cause this problem...What is the fuse #...? Bob

I don't really know how to describe it. Car starts fine. Start driving - seems fine - then all of a sudden I lose acceleration power and have to sit on the side of the road not being able to accelerate. I've had luck driving it around a parking garage until the problem goes away but then when I get to my destination and get back in the car - the same thing AGAIN!

Trunk door does not open. When the hatch door button is pressed the clicking sound is still heard but the door remains locked and shut.

I have had the P0455 CEL on my 1999 Beetle for a while. I inspected the Cannister and couldn't detect any cracks or leaks. I took it to a shop and they told me it was the gascap. I changed it out and the code came back. I took it back a while later and they did another diagnostic and told me it was the purge valve. Instead of paying them to fix it, I ordered the valve and installed it. The code came back after 2 days. I checked the voltage and it was about 8V. That seemed low. The valve doesn't ever open. I also didn't notice any pressure or vacuum on the hose between the valve and the cannister. Should there be pressure at this valve all of the time? What should the voltage be to open the valve? If there is no pressure at this valve, does that indicate a problem with the leak detection pump? Thanks.

i have a 2001 vw beetle, the turn signals, wipers, ac/heater fan and lights don't turn on. i have checked the fuses and everything looks fine.
