When i start to accelerate at a stop sign/light, "Bessie" sometimes just hesitates and I'm sitting there trying to get moving. People behind me Beep their horn or yell. After a few pumps of my foot, "Bessie", will eventually get going. Then, during acceleration, she has trouble getting going. hesitation again. Whats the problem?

It just happened when I started up the car this morning. It runs but it spews white smoke. Allot when I start it up. It occurs all the time.

I did find my oil level high so I expect I have an internal coolant leak.
does this mean a bad head gasket?

250k runs fine but when i start it sometimes none os the elect. Stuff work (wipers, lights ,windos,blower fan) and if i turn it off some time it wont start up or even turnover at all. But if i wait a few min. It will start up like theres nothing wrong at all. Could this be a brain pob. And if so how much mite that cost.

First time doing recharge on vehicle.

It is a key only no remote

On a few occasions it has become difficult to engage 5th gear. The problem is not consistant, happens at different times of day and engine temp's. Speed at change does not have a effect. Have to hold gear lever and release clutch to engage.

The leather trim on the door panels, keeps coming loose. It is just kind of pressed on or something, I keep having to repress it under the seam. I don't know why it keeps coming loose.

As above - however if anyone has a manual to email me that would be brill!

After putting freon in ac unit, van cut off. it won't start sounds like its out of gas. it's not.

I have a 99 VW Beetle and the check engine light is on. Advance auto put it on the machine and has advised that code 0422 came up. Can someone tell me what is wrong? I looked that up and it appears that it may be the catalytic converter? I hope not but can someone confirm or deny my findings? Also, is it safe to drive and for how long can I drive it like this? Will it cause additional damage on the car?


Everything passed on the car except for this vapor leak, where should I look to repair the problem? No one seems to know where the leak is.

It occurs ever time I back out of the garage.
I have less than 4,000 miles
