Check the oil.. and check your belt. I recenlty over heated mine cuz it shreded the belt which let the back fan cool the engine. Also when I g8t the bug I put toooo much oil . If uhave too much oil theoil will find away out to get rid of it. Causing it to leak on hot surfaces- then too little oil will give u problems of shuttinh off. Also check if the carb is adjusted correctly
