Why does it shut down while driving?


First, do not run engine low on oil. Next, run tests when it has failed. Spark to plugs? Correct fuel pressure?

i had the exact same thing happen to me with my first car, a 1966 mercury comet.

i replaced the fuel pump, rebuilt the carburetor (twice), and finally rebuilt the entire engine! still, every time afterwards, the car ran ok, then would cut off again!

it turned to be just a $2 clogged fuel filter. i' suspect the same with your vehicle. after removing the filter, simply blow through it. any resistance, means it needs replacing.

I had a similar problem, before it shut off, the rpm needle would booble up and down and then drop to 0 and shut off. After a while it would happen in the city and not just the highway. Ended up being the fuel pump, and I was also told the fuel pumps are known to fail on the mk4.

Check your fuel pump. This is how they fail most of the time. If you turn the key on and dont hear the pump prime then have your fuel pressure tested.
