My 98 Beetle will start but dies after about four seconds. I pulled the little round thing and it's getting gas but will not run. When it starts The gas pedal seems like it goes to the floor. any help at all? I'm not a certified mechanic but I have built engines all my life. I don't have a clue with this little fun driving car. Love and hate it. Thanks

Please fill in your personal/car info: year, model, engine and transmission specs (so, we can help you more intelligently; input info in your "user profile"). Well, this is a modern computer controlled car; so start with scanning it. Any trouble codes? The trouble codes; could point you in the direction of the problem. What is the history of the car and how has it been running lately? I would start simple; check for spark and fuel pressure.
