Question about Cars & Trucks
Keeps cutting out. looks like petrol leaking from carburator at rear section. When taking air intake filter housing off the vehicle starts and runs but cuts out after replacing filter housing.
It is possible that the float level is set too high or even that some part of the air cover assembly is putting on something. It sounds strange that the engine seemed to run alright with the cover removed. It's possible that it could be a combination of things and you would have too know what to look for.
VW engines especially.Regards

what you're discribing seems to me to be a misfire which would definitely set the engine light. it may also indicate a front end drive axle out of balance. possibly a wheel bearing or worse a bearing in the trans. best to take it in for service.
