  1. 2003 New Beetle, O2 sensor P0038 issue

    2.0 Liter Gas
    Hi, I have got several codes about O2 sensor so I changed the O2 sensor (after the cat). I started the car and clear the code, everything seems good. However, after driver for a while, the engine light was set again and the code is P0038. I can clear the code and it will bet again. Could anybody...

    Hello everyone, I am in the process of diagnosing some problems with my 1998 Beetle 2.0L (AEG), stick transmission, 173k miles on it. Background info It's had the CEL on for a while now (maybe more than 2 years). No noticeable change in performance (maybe just drop in mpg, not too much power...
  3. Random misfire/po422

    2.0 Liter Gas
    This is the continuing saga of mu P0422 issue. *LOL* Last year, I had a persistent P0422 issue and discovered that it was due to a bad catalytic converter. I had my local mechanic replace the cat and one of the O2 sensors (over $900). The issue went away and Beauty drove just fine until a...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I have an automatic, 2002 New Beetle, and I've only owned it for a month or so. The first time this happened, the check engine light came on, I took it to the shop, and the computer said it was an 02 sensor. We live in Europe, and the person who we bought the car from had JUST started using...
  7. O2 sensor issue

    2.0 Liter Gas
    I see I'm not the only person with an O2 sensor problem, so here goes: When I bought my Bug a year ago, I was having tranny issues and the mechanics that looked at it, also found O2 sensor code when they were looking at the transmission. They looked at the sensor and determined it was brand...
  8. O2 sensor?

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I brought my bug into a VW dealership this morning. The Check Engine Light has been on for over a month, but haven't been able to take it in to get it checked until today. :o When I started it (which took almost 15 minutes to warm up, but it was -24C/-11F outside) there was a lot of exhaust...

    Changed the pre-cat O2 sensor a week ago. No hesitation since! This has been bothering me for years!
