1993 VW cabriolet nightmare

Asked by Jul 07, 2014 at 12:44 PM about the Volkswagen Cabrio

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1993 VW cabby, 64K miles on it. It started heitating and billowing black smoke
after about 18-20 miles. Then I had to let it cool down for 30min, before driving it again.
I have had the sensors, plugs and oil changed. Then the mechanic I was taking it to said it
needed a new computer. I am now on my 4th computer and the problem is still NOT
fixed....any suggestions would be welcomed and soooo appreciated!

FInd a new mechanic, you shouldn't have to replace the computer 4 times.
