  1. Technical How-To
    My wife and I just recently bought a New Beetle 2006 2.5 for her. It was a good deal but needed a tune-up and has a few maintenance issues, so I’m looking to fix them. I replaced the spark plugs last week, and I noticed one or two had oil in them; I replaced them anyway because I was already...
