    Thanks - I sure did hope you'd be one to answer me ! By the way - how do you do a " search " for a topic already discussed ?
  2. 1998 Beetle w/ 2,0L engine

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    This Bleeder would probably be great for my total flush job, after I replace all the parts I plan to do. Thanks for the info and suggestion. I am still holding out hope that someone has a kit for adding a 2nd reservoir in a more convenient location. Years ago, when the master cylinder was...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    On a different issue , I'd like to once again tap your vast VW Beetle knowledge, if you don't mind. This time I'm talking about the brake master cylinder fluid reservoir, and in particular the place that VW chose for it's location. On all the car & trucks I've worked on over the years...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Took your advice, and the hose is now on order ! Thanks so much. This car has always been outside since new, and a hard plastic hose is bound to be subject to cracking . I'm pleased that now I can push on with other parts, and stop being concerned about the engine and it's rough running...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    PROBLEMS SOLVED !!!šŸ˜Š After checking the function of the mechanical part of the throttle control module, I sure couldn't notice anything wrong. I also checked all the wiring harnesses, etc. All seemed to be in order. So since our snow had melted, and it was the warmest day we'd had in...
  6. 1998 Beetle w/ 2,0L engine

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I would really appreciate your advice regarding my situation with the '98 engine here. As I've told you I did the timing belt job, water pump, fuel injectors, fuel filter , fuel pump regulator, plugs, wires, and also a new coil. I used as many top name brand items as I could. So, after...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    NICE ! Those PEX clamps give it a factory look. Isn't amazing how much dust & dirt show up in photos ? I have always wondered why the target of my photo never shows up as well as the surrounding dirt does! It never looks that bad when I look at it in person. Just kidding here. You...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Well, thanks again for the info. Very much appreciated, since all systems are new to me with this vehicle. I'm enjoying the challenge of learning about it. Odd to think of a 1998 vehicle as "new technology" for me, but thinking back to all that I've worked on in the past, it really is " new "...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hi billymade - you and I are also communicating about fuel injection hoses now, but I have to ask a question ( or two ) about your response above. My recently acquired '98 Beetle is my break-away from a long life of Studebaker restorations. I grew up in a Studebaker dealership family, and over...

    Thanks so much for the great info. I'll start looking for the proper hose in shops in town here. I'll report my findings as well.
  13. 1998 Beetle w/ 2,0L engine

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I figured the VW hoses would be priced way out of my range. So your idea of the auto parts store hose is a good idea, but we both need to get hose that can hold the pressure. Do you know what PSI we need to be talking about for this car ? Also, I am wondering if a local store would have the...
  14. 1998 Beetle w/ 2,0L engine

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I recently bought this '98 Beetle, which has just under 80,000 miles on it. The car is in good condition especially since it has never been garaged. I'm refreshing all I can under the hood to make it as dependable as possible, and just finished the timing belt, tensioner, and water pump job...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    You probably just blew a fuse. The easy way to find out which circuit has the problem is to go to a place like an Auto Zone, and rent an OBD II scanner. Take it back to the vehicle and plug it in under the dash - left side, and follow the instructions that come with it. Or, maybe you have a...
