1974 beetle shut off while downshifting

Asked by Oct 14, 2016 at 03:02 PM about the 1974 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was taking my beetle for a spin and when I downshifted
the beetle quietly shut off. She will not start. She sounds
like she wants to but she won't.  I don't drive her often. I
put in a new fuel filter and the new filter has visible fuel in
it.
