We have begun to smell a burning odor frequently with our VW. The temperature gauge does not show hot, but if the heater is on, the inside of the car just smells burny. If you don't have the heater on, when you step out of the car, you still smell the burny odor. Had it checked a while back and were told we ran over a grocery bag, but the odor continues.

There are no diagnostic codes. I just had the front axels replaced, Air filter, one ignition coil, spark plugs, fuel filter (A complete tune up). My car vibrates when I put it in gear. Nothing was wrong before, until they changed all those things.

beeping sound like if your seatbelt was off, message across panel saying oil pressure engine shut down. had it towed in to a mechanic he said my motor was blown cause the oil was real black due to lack of oil change. it starts up but do not turn over.
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.
tail lights, brake lights work but turn signal don't. Fuses are ok.
