Passat 103kw tdi lost power on a hill at 100kph and engine stopped and won't restart


Lawrie, could be bad fuel, fuel filter clogged, fuel pump faulty, timing belt faulty,etc., best to find a good Tech. have them scan for trouble codes, diagnose and estimate repair.

Oil light came on car lost power shut off and wont start what should i do


If the engine ran out of oil, then there's some serious damage done. If there was plenty of oil, then the oil pump shaft may have snapped or failed internally. Have a mechanic inspect the cause since he will have the necessary tools and equipment to do the job safely.

Why did engine running, won't restart.


lots and lots of reasons, guessing. over 50 (bad engine?)
but does it crank?, no car starts unless it's cranked or
like my car, push started or gravity started (a 6sp m/t)
if engine fails to start , and cranks robustly (fast starter motor)
then
1: never tuned up, running 10 year old spark parts.
2: blow fuse. check fuses.
3:; lost spark, check spark.
4: flooding or loss of fueling. to unflood any engine, crank at wideopen throttle (oper, guide tells you that)
5: timing belt not changed at 60,000 miles it will fail, and will not start
or start have like 1/4 power.
6: lost compression in or more cylinders.?

or
get it serviced? if all that is too much work? or confusing.

Hummer stalling while driving


Big engine needs a good strong drive belt. Belts stretch after time and just need replacing. I would start there first. Next if you notice any sputtering when it's about to stall then it may be a bad or clogged fuel filter.

I have a 2006 dodge magnum it will start sometime fine but then it will start then about 3 seconds it would cut off to it to dodge twice they cant find out anything changed the battery got i new key...


can i buy a comma., says Vanna White>?
one rule of dealers, (avoid them use independent ASE shops)
or go broke. ($25 spark plugs there... i warned yah)
rule 2,
never take a car to any dealer unless you can DEMONSTRATE the failure. most shops can NOT fix cars that work,
they will try, and charge you CASH for trying, and no blush.

my impression is, the cars issues are INTERMITTENT.
if you dont know cars and electrics, then it may be impossible for you.
but some nicer independant shops might drive it for a day for you
to get it to fail. that WORKS, see WHY?

your engine stalls. that is the key word, random STALLS.
now lets work that IDEA.
there are 3 paths (one of them works out to 50 causes)
here they are..
1 bad DC power, 2 bad engine , or 3 vbad ISC controls.
all my answers ASSUME the car is 100% tunedup using the 60k miles column ! or up to 100k on some. cars. did you?
when it stalls can YOUR right foot (fast moving) save the stall.
??????????????????
does the stalled engine easily restart?????????????????????


The engine brain, PCM/ECU does all it can to stop stalls.
it does, if it stalls, its a very serious failure !
Now the full list ,( expanded)
1: lost of 12vdc electrical power to the EFI system. (voltmeter 101)
use a voltmeter to catch it. seen even at the cig lighter port.!!!!
2: lost spark? wont restart? (do the classic spark test)
3: lost fueling ? more tests (no start, try test fuel)
3A; flooding,? spark tips soaking wet. use WIDE open throttle to start engine and cut fuel , cranking, this help , try starting with 10% throttle ti see if ISC is stuck closed.
4: bad engine, the 50 ways and engine can fail. lost compression , on any or all cylinders , will do that. hot or cold or both .???????
one way to solve problems is by elimination.
say some head valves stick, only hot and only randomly. (nasty issues)

you find that (not saying it is, i never guess)
you prove that this way, examples
good 12vdc, power, checked.
good spark, checked. on all cylinders, not just 1.
injectors test pass, no leak down test failures and the injector balance test passes. (the FSM covers these 6 tests for fuel pressure)
conclusion"
so must be engine bad, it stalls, and runs bad , restarted or not at all.
so you find compression on 2 cylinders are low , 25psi, hot.
all else was tested good so i attack the engine'.
on old engines, i do that first.

so do tell what engine does and does not fully,
your post leaves out most facts.
stalls, and can you save the stall.
and does it restart.
and do you have 12VDC power at stall.

I was driving down the road and lost power..no gas..no brakes...no steering.


did it restart?
the engine stalled, as such you
get
no engine power
no P/S reverts to manual steering, you did not loose steering.
same with P/B power brakes, you didnt lose it you lost power
assist, brakes will stop just as vast but takes a husky foot.
in school (driving) we were though to drive, stalled engine.
i guess most school went dumb. (seen it)
now stalls
engine stall for a vast number or reasons.

do that tuneup not called the 60k mile service point list. did you.?
cars ignored all fail, no car runs 300k miles service free,
skip them and get stranded, (i promise)

1: lost electric power to the EFI system.
2: engine overheated or lost compression for any reasons (complex)
3: lost spark
4: lost fuel
5: too much fuel, flooding, and stalling.
6: egr sticks open.
7: ISC sticks closed.
8:if not restart, say so and list expands way more...

cars are complex, it's not like a burned out desk lamp.
vast complexity and after 2007 , insane complexity.
avoid them 2007 and newer, sans NASA engineer.

Car cuts out during driving at highway speeds.


that is very good, the cars momentum will in fact restart the car.
with a M/T tranny, with A/T it slips. so is car a M/T , stick?
do post tranny type, we cant guess that....???
misfires and stalls. the engine stalls, the ECU tries very hard to
prevent stalls, but failed to do so...
you are loosing electric power, 12vdc , and this kills EFI
is the CEL lamp not coming on at 0rpm when the engine does stall>?
if not you lost 12v. hard fact.
this is not hard to find or fix ,if lost 12v.
when you lose 12v the dash goes dead, warning lamps fail.
and in such a stated, the key crank will be dead.
after all there is no 12v to do the cranking, from key.
its an old car and all cars fail there is no car that does not.
all machines do. even space shuttles. fail 1:50 times.

if you have a voltmeter, connect it to the CIG lighter port.
and see if the 13.3 to 15vdc running drops to zero or below 10v.
if yes, BINGO.
the CIG steals power from the ignition power feed.

when any key start fails to crank here are some tricks.

in view of your post , you have 2 non related problems
or the battery cables are corroded. ever clean them>
one other trick is have head lights on, at the stall
are the headlamps FULL bightness at the stall>?????? very easy test.

Check engine light and TC light came on and car lost engine. Still had power steering and brakes. Have attempted to restart but will not. Any ideas?


I am more familiar with Ford products. If you have a cutoff for the traction control on your dash you want to remove a battery cable to get the Engine light to clear.

Reattach the cable after 10 minutes and turn off the traction control. Then try starting the car. If that does not work disconnect the fuse to the traction control and then try starting again.

All the traction devices interrupt the engines as part of stopping the wheels from spinning. The Traction Control on yours is stuck. If you can eliminate that feature you may get your engine to run again.

Truck will not start. All power consumption from battery stopped.


Get a voltmeter or test light. Open the fuse panel in the engine compartment and see if you have voltage there. Check the main fuse. Look closely at the battery connection to see if one of the accessory power wires came off. Lastly, check to make sure you have a good ground connection on the engine and frame and that you have continuity to the negative battery post.
