1998 Volkswagen cabrio

Asked by Apr 16, 2016 at 09:49 PM about the 1998 Volkswagen Cabrio 2 Dr GL Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought this car a few months ago and I've
been trying to figure out why it keeps
cutting out at 4000 rpm it idles good but
when you hit 4000 going up hill it looses all
power and have to keep it under 10 mph

1 Answer

21,965

that is an old car and they are not the most reliable at that age- I don't think I would buy one- but, whatever, you got it now, and anything short of a complete restoration- will keep you in the shop- for now, check the catalytic converter and the fuel injection-
