2000 New Beetle starting problems

20

Asked by Nov 16, 2013 at 06:11 PM about the 2000 Volkswagen Beetle GLS 2.0

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 Beetle 2.0 ltr, does not want to start when the engine is cold.  Starts fine once the engine has warmed up.  This all started after the car had been overheating because the radiator need to be replaced.  So the radiator has been replaced, oil changed, 02 sensors replaced, maf sensor replaced.  Not sure what else I should try, any suggestions?

I'd have a compression test done on your cylinders. One might be low, pinpointing a head gasket issue. Since you overheated that can cause stresses on the gasket and head.
