Our 2002 2.0L Beetle started going bonkers the other day. Anyone have any idea how I should start diagnosing this? The check engine light is flashing on and on. When I give the engine gas the fluttering doesn't seem to get any better.

Thanks for any help!

Sounds like it jumped timing. Whats the mileage? Have the TB/WP been done?

Just under 90k and we had the timing belt changed this year. Hmmm probably not a good idea to drive it right? What a pain

Sounds pretty awful. :( I would have it scanned and see what the code are that come up. I wouldn't be driving it like that.

Sounds pretty bad...I would not drive it/start it any more than you have to before having a mechanic taking a look at it. Please share what you find out...a jumped timing belt or maybe only one or two cylinders are firing could be the cause.

Ya sorry I didn't know which forum people would visit more. We can close this thread since the other has more participation.
