Engine Performance problem
2001 Volkswagen Beetle 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 75,000 miles
I have a 2001 VW diesel bug. When the weather was extremely cold, I filled my car with diesel when it was below 1/4 tank. Immediately afterward, it seemed as though no fuel was getting to the engine as it had no power when I stepped on the gas pedal. There was also a lot of smoke coming from the exhaust. I turned the car off and on, and let it run for a few minutes and it was fine. I thought it might have something to do with the cold or maybe condensation in the line. The same thing happened on two other occasions (minus the smoke and the cold). Once again, I turned the car off and on and let it run for a few minutes and it was fine. I am thinking it has something to do with the fuel system. My husband recently changed the fuel filter, so I know it is not clogged. Any ideas would be appreciated.
have the same problem?
