it may be your alternator going bad that is what happened to mine, and i just changed the alternator, and it fires right up, to check your alternator start your car if it will start, and while its running take off your positive battery cable, if it dies your alternator is bad if it stays runnign your alternator is good, then it could just be your compression, or something in your gas.

Can you findout if your 1974 beetle is super beetle from the vin number?

Yes. Look at the first three digits: 114: Standard Beetle 134: Super Beetle There are five other ways to tell. a. Windshield. Flat windshield: Standard Beetle Curved windshield: Super Beetle b. Dashboard. Dashboard made of steel, flat and straight up-and-down below the windshield: Standard Beetle Padded dashboard that looks a little like one from a modern car: Super Beetle c. Front shocks. Just the shock: Standard Beetle Shock inside huge coil spring: Super Beetle d. Front apron - the piece of sheet metal below the front lip of the trunk lid No vent slots: Standard Beetle Vent slots: Super Beetle (Having said that, when Supers were still being made, some of the aftermarket body-parts companies made slot-free Super Beetle aprons. Since the slots don't do anything anyway, why not?) e. Spare tire Spare tire standing up in the trunk: Standard Beetle Spare tire lying flat in a tire well: Super Beetle

1971 vw how can you find out if it is a super beetle or a beetle?

There are a few things to look at, look at the windshield first, in a super beetle it will be curved, also on a super beetle if you look at the front suspension you will see struts (springs instead of shocks) and if you open the hood you will see a circular depression for the spare tire to lay down, and the last way to tell is to look at that dashboard, a super beetle has a dashboard that is big enough to throw a pack of cigarettes on to whereas a standard bug has no dashboard.Actually, in a 1971 and 1972 beetle you can get a super beetle with a flat window and a flat dash. I own a 1971 Super beetle. It looks like a standard beetle in every way but it is slightly larger. The only way to tell is by looking for a spare tire that lays flat (only true in the Super) and the suspension. I suggest looking at the spare. If it is angled vertically it is standard - laying flat means it's a super.
