I have a 2000 Beetle 1.8L GLS Turbo Manual trans.
I'm having a few problems with it and I hope someone can help me figure out whats wrong with my Babe!!! ???
1) He will not take off on a hill if the A\C is on.
2) Cruise control just randomly quit working.
3) He will not idle without pumping gas and it takes several pumps to finally pick up.
4) He has been known to die randomly.
5) Check engine light has been on for a while.
I did hook it up to the code reader and can't remember right off what the code was but can check again tmw. I cleared codes and unhooked the battery for 30+ Mins. Check engine went off but came back on after about 10 mins.
I've read so many discussions and watched a ton of videos but no luck yet!!!
PLEASE HELP A GIRL IN NEED. 馃檹馃檹馃檹

I've done a lot of research and I'm leaning towards the downstream O2 Sensor but not completely confident. But would that cause him to have that whole list of problems??

The Bank 1 Sensor 2, is after catalytic converter; while, it does play a role in the computer adjusting the engine, the Bank 1 Sensor 1, plays a more important role. If you do decide to replace the 02 sensor; it is recommended to only use oem genuine Bosch sensors, which VW uses from the factory and are supplied, when buying genuine VW parts.

You can look up the correct sensor; by using the Bosch online catalog here:


For testing, you can follow the procedures; outlined, in this service manual link below (be sure, to click "next"; to advance to all the pages/testing procedures):

locations:

-

Oxygen Sensor (O2S) after Three Way Catalytic Converter (TWC) -G130-, 50Nm

Location: behind Three Way Catalytic Converter (TWC)
