Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2000 vw beetle will not start. I used starting fluid a couple times and sometimes it
started. I just had a mechanic to check my fuel pump and filter and it was fine. I just cant
seem to find out what the problem is. It tries to start up but it will not run

You need a new mechanic. Hard to tell you what the exact issue is based on your information.


That just happened to my 2000 VW Beetle. They replaced the camshaft sensor. If I remember correctly. Now it's fine.
