VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE 97 Beetle leaking oil and missing occasionally

My girlfriends 97 beetle has been needing a tune up for a while (im guessing) and it started missing periodically. This made it vibrate a lot then it started leaking oil (half a quart a day) from somewhere. Also it has very little power and stalls occasionally. Any help with this issue would be appreciated since i dont have much cash to take it to a dealership for repairs. This ad is not displayed to registered members.

VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE Have questions and need answers

VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE 72 Super Beetle is silenced...

Yep the horns broke. It didnt work when I got the car and it still isnt working. Im beating my head trying to figure this one out. Looks like the previous owner had started thinking about installing a separate horn button but gave up when he found that the button wasnt actually the problem. Ive cleaned contacts changed horns and just cant seem to find the reason it wont make noise. Anyone have any

Put it on ramps look under the front part of the car just above the master cyl you will see the steering shaft going to the steering sector. On this shaft there will be a rubber flex joint looks almost like a universal joint the wire going through the shaft comes out at the joint and fastens to a clip or bolt. the wire circuit has to pass over this rubber joint and connect to the shaft on the sector

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B5 Groan Another transmission foul-up

(2005 Passat Wagon 4-Motion wTiptronic.) I stopped in traffic today behind a truck that was turning. He got out of the way and I took off - or tried to. I hit the gas and nothing happened. For a moment I thought that Id bumped the shift into neutral. I checked it out and it was still in D. On the gas again and with a lot of slipping I got off of the road. The CEL light had come on and I noticed that

that they thought that there is an underlying problem in the cars electrical system that is causing the continuing failure so while VW is covering the trans. under warranty there will probably be more expense to follow. Since January of this year Ive put about 2500.00 into the car. Now Ill be without a car for a few weeks. This is my 5th VW. Itll be my last one. I started out with a pair of 57 beetles

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B5 01 V6 ATQ wagon bought at auction...now what

Last November I totaled my baby 2002 Passat 1.8t. Bought new and lovingly maintained. Im fine. I replaced it with an 01 V6 ATQ wth 90K that came from an auto auction (YIKES I always said Id never do that) but it was a good price (I think...3800) and relatively low miles. I did the brakes and rotors and flex pipe to pass inspection. So now I have to learn all about the ATQ and decide what to do first.

was able to convince him to sell it for cheap. It turns out hes a dealer working out of his house who buys European cars in California and re-sells in NV. It was around December and people dont buy many european cars around the Holidays here so he needed to get rid of the Passat to buy trucks for his December Inventory. He sold the car for cheap (He was Pissed ) anyhow i also had at that time a beetle

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B5 New Passat Owner with a TON of Electrical Gremlins Please Help

Ok I bought a 99 Passat with the 2.8L V6 and 5 speed manual tranny. First off it RUNS great but youd never know it due to all the electrical problems. First problem. I can be setting at a light and my tachometer glitches and dives up and down even going below ZERO yet the car engine is idling perfect. When I drive it normal it spikes down occassionally but if I get on it the tach seems to lose control.

10 my POS car now drives perfectly straight and has a brand new great battery And also my power mirrors and power windows all work fine now as it was just a burned out fuse. Seems this POS car keeps getting better everyday and looking fine I might add. Its definitely no Ford Five Hundred like I replaced it with. Its engine isnt as powerful or smooth but this is my first VW except my old 71 Super beetle.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 4ETS failure

Sunday I was on a short drive in my 2000 ML320. It was clear and dry. I was backing out of a level well packed gravel driveway and backed into a shallow grassy ditch running along the edge of the driveway. The front left wheel stayed on the driveway. There was no part of the frame touching the ground anywhere. I tried to pull forward onto the driveway and the front left wheel just sat there spinning
