This 99 Beetle is giving lots of problem. Transmission does not shift right for some reason so I decided to change the ATF. Of course with the VW ATF ($13/litre). Well, trany works good so far and it's been a week now. BUT...now my speedometer died and check engine lite turned on. So I replaced the speedometer transmitter but still does not work. Now, I'm going to get the plastic gear itself and hope it will solve it. God, what's up with this car. I just hope it's not the internal gear that is messed up cuz it will really cost alot just to replace this darn plastic gears. Why do they make it in plastic anyway. This things does not last long. It brakes easy.
