  1. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hi, Beetlers. I just got a used 98 Beetle, and I love it. Unfortunately, yesterday, my engine died at a stoplight.

    Hello everyone, I've fighting with our 1999 2.0L gas that has a rough idle an engine misfires.

  7. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    It's been a LONG time since I have been on the board but, as always, I come here to search the board when I have 'issues'. Since the whole timing belt and bent valves mess the bug has had cold start troubles as well as idling issues. When I am sitting at a light my boost WAS at -20 but the last...
