95 jetta sputters

My car was driving just fine until I was about 40 miles from home, and I was driving on the freeway about 70 mph, and all of a sudden it drops down to 25 mph, and the car starts sputtering. I was able to luckly get it off the freeway to the next exit where I could only drive the car no more than 10 mph or it would start sputtering.The mechanic that AAA sent out to look at before the tow truck came, thought it might be the catalyic convertor. Does anyone have any ideas on what it might be?

I had a similar problem it turned out to be a faulty fuel pump. Any mechanic should be able to do a fuel pressure test. to rule this out

Lexus RX 300 RPM go up when driving at 40 MPH


Is it a standard? If so sounds like the clutch is giving up and needs replacing. If it is an automatic then check fluid level might be low, that can cause slippage.

Sounds like a bad speed sensor. Perform an ODBII scan soon. ECU should delay upshift until coolant temp senses warm up. It will not work right unless a signal is present from speed sensor.

Will not start (no fuel pressure)


put your emergency brake on, in park, foot on brake, and have someone lay on the ground and rap the fuel tank at its lowest point (this is where the fuel pump is) at the same time crank it to start, if it starts decide where you want to take it to avoid a tow bill and dont shut it off till your there. otherwise if it does not start, when was the last fuel filter replaced!

Engine light and cuts out at freeways speed when climbing up hil


Hi, williamtkr.

Have you changed your fuel filter lately? I had a vehicle once whose fuel tank that had a rusty seam. Every 10,000 miles or so, the rust flakes would clog the fuel filter, and the engine would sputter and stall when the vehicle was climbing uphill. If you idled for a bit, you could drive on for a ways, until the same thing happened.

A nearly dead fuel pump could cause the same problem, I suppose.

Good luck.

2007 Saturn VUE Green Line recommendation


Our family has owned Saturns since 1992. They've always been reliable out-performers, until the most recent one. I took delivery of my 2007 Hybrid Vue on 31 May, 2007. From the first tankful of gas, the mileage has been woefully short of the projections - worst case was 19 and best was 32 on the freeway at 70 mph and no air conditioning. Most recently, I drove the Vue down I-95 in Florida at around 70 and no A/C. Mileage? 28. Do the math. That's about 3 mpg better than my first Vue would have gotten. At $3 a gallon, it'll take me approximately 233,000 miles to recoup the $3000 premium I paid for the car. If you live in a climate where air conditioning is not a means of survival in the summer, then this car might be OK.
