Just purchased my 2001 vw beetle glx turbo about 2 months ago. A few days ago my Check engine light came on...soon after my EPC light came on as well and car has lost all power...anyone have any idea what the problem can be? will it be a costly fix. It is going to get looked at soon...:confused:

You need to get the car scanned for codes. Autozone, etc. can do that for free. If you post up the code numbers here, we can give you more direction.

First up, coil packs. Call the dealer with your VIN to check to see if the recalls have been done. You might get them done for free. If up to date on the recall, check them yourself.

To find out which one is bad, start the car, then disconnect the coil packs one at a time. When one is disconnected, and it DOESN'T run different, that is your bad coil pack.
