We have a 2005 VW new beetle and have recently been losing power.

On rare occasion, after starting, the engine will stop running and will die. Usually, if you turn the key again, it starts and is ok.

However, while driving, it will occasionally (today it happened 3x) just lose all power. Everything in the car functions ok (lights, stereo, etc), no warning lights come on, but pressing on the gas does nothing and I can't hear the engine run. It does this for a couple seconds before the engine starts running again then it goes fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Which engine ?

:)
Edit: 2.0

Check for cracks in pipes or cuts. Also check the air intake valve. Sometimes these get stuck open.

IMHO :)

I have a 05 2.0l . Mine did the same thing before the fuse block melted. Check all of the battery connctions,esp. the fuse block on top of the battery.
