1999 VW Beetle 2.0 ltr stalling / not getting gas quick enough

Asked by Jan 16, 2010 at 10:22 AM about the 1999 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi guys, I have a 1999 VW Bettle, 2.0 ltr, the past week or so has started to stall. I press the gas, the car doesn't move, but eventually the gas catches up and it goes - even at 60MPH, i let off, it takes one or two seconds to catch up after pressing pedal, seems to be getting worse.  any ideas?  Thanks!

How many miles are on your bug? A clogged fuel filter will do that, and if its the stock cat. converter from the factory you might get that checked, it might be getting clogged up. Other than that, cant really think of much more. Hope this helps you.
