I bought my car in March a beautiful 2003 1.8l Turbo Volkswagen New Beetle 92,600 miles, my dream car. However, since I have bought it I have been making non stop repairs. Since March I have had my turbo rebuilt, new oil pan and gas tank, alternator, accessory belt with tensioner and tensioner pulley along with my fuel pump, MAF sensor, break light switch, and right now I'm investing in a timing belt kit. However, the problem I'm having is ever since I replaced my fuel pump when I make left turns my car stalls out and just the battery light would come on (got the alternator replaced)it didn't do it all the time, I took it back they adjusted the fuel pump and it did ok for a while. Now I can't make left turns at all it does this sputtering and now instead of my battery light its my EPC and Traction control light and sometimes my check engine light will come on as well and I lose complete power. The strange thing is as soon as I turn my car off and back on my EPC and traction control light will turn off. I have taken my car to Volkswagen they felt so bad for me that they didn't even charge me for the diagnostic. In the midst of getting the money to pay for the timing belt kit and labor my check engine light is a weakly occurrence with 2-4 codes at a time, my dad has a code reader or else I would go broke getting every code read. Each time my car has a different code p0012,p0420 and some others I'll have to get from my dad (he keeps record of every code)they are all different. I have been told this problem could be my accelerator petal actuator sensor (something like that) but I'm confused because wouldn't it do the same for right turns? also if I put the car in reverse I can turn my steering wheel to the left and it moves fine. Please help me I'm spending about $800 this month on this car to get the timing belt, water pump, thermostat, etc. fixed and I need to be able to make left turns! I'm afraid this car is not only going to make me broke but kill me in the process.
