Having problems with your 1998 Volkswagen Beetle ?
1998 beetle will start and idle, but will die when accelerated
\015 The car will start and idle, but when I try to give it gas, the car dies. It will start again, but cannot accelerate.\015
When was the last time you had your fuel filter replaced ?? Sounds like the engine may be starved for gas because of a clogged fuel filter. If you have no record of having been replaced, this may be the least expensive place to begin, but be careful the quick disconnects on the fuel filter can be difficult to push in. Also, the fuel lines will be pressurized when they are disconnected, and could spray gas into your face if your not careful. If you damage the disconnects on the fuel lines you will need to have the lines replaced, so be gentle.
Had to start it 2 in the morning and now it dies goin down the road and now having trouble starting alltogether
