THE OIL LIGHT CAME ON AND THEN A LOUD BEEPING INSIDE. IT STOPED WHEN I PULLED OVER.
car not excellarating over 40 mphs.
NEVER UNDERSTOOD ALL OF THE FUSS OVER BEARING FAILURE IF INNER RACE IS NOT SUPPORTED...I JUST PRESS THE HUB ONTO THE NEW BEARING BY TORQUING DOWN THE AXLE NUT WITH THE SPINDLE INSERTED, AFTER TAPPING THE HUB INTO THE BEARING AS IT SEATS.
TORQUING THE NUT WITH A 1/2 INCH BREAKER BAR PRESSES THE HUB DOWN TO A ZERO SEAT OR VERY CLOSE...GREASING THE HUB SPLINE, AND INNER RACE LIGHTLY HELPS EVERY THING ALONG! OF COURSE I USE A MODIFIED SCHLEGE VW PRESS KIT THAT ALLOWS ME TO DO THE WORK WITH THE BEARING ASSEMBLY ON THE CAR. USING COMPRESSORS ON THE STRUTT SPRING RELIEVES TENSION AND ALLOWS YOU TO SWING THE STRUTT TO DISENGAGE THE AXLE/CV SPINDLE.....
When I drive VW Jetta 1995 with low-beam lights, no problem occurs. When I try to turn high-beam lights on, I pull the lights switch (which switches between high- and low-beam), but as soon, as I release the switch, it automatically switches to low-beam again. What can it be and how can it be fixed?

Is the fuel pump supposed to have a moderately loud sound when I turn the key to 'accessory', i.e. when contact is on?
It's a non-stop sound that's been there for 2 months since I last had a repair and they - I don't know why - made a bypass from the fuse panel to the fuel pump plug !?!?
Still completely cold at start-up, once I started the car, a few seconds later the temp light went on. I had this happen once before when the car overheated. Yet the temp needle was at the cold extremity. I let it run till the needle crossed 90 degrees to show sign of an overheat, but once it got to 90 degrees it stood there just as usual. No overheat.
Why would the temp light go on, moreso right after a cold start??? OBDII Scanner found nothing, yet I don't want this to happen on a highway far from home next time :S
Never mind, since there was no overheat, I checked coolant level and it was low. That was the reason!
I had a diagnostic check done and the codes are 00518 and 00537. The car won't accelerate check engine light came on

My car battery never died. I just unplugged my mp3 from the cord attached to a tape that does mp3 player playback, while my car was off and parked in my driveway.

What else can I check before I have to give up, and take it to a dealer?

I am trying to remove the PCV (Crankcase Vent Valve) but it won't come out; it spins freely but i cannot pull it upward. Looking at a picture of the valve it doesn't appear to have anything holding it other than a small lip on the end of the tube. I don't want to break it, can anyone offer any advise on removing it?

VW dealership said that when it broke, damage was done, something was bent, resulting in a major 5000.00 repair. How do I know that what they are telling me is the honest truth, and when or if repairs are made that they do what they said and not just kind of fix it. I'm young & female and don't know anything about cars.
When you start it starts then shuts off right away but if you start it and hold the key forward it will stay running...any idea what this may be????
