IAC valve may be sticky or carboned up. Use throttle body cleaner to clean it up, and it should be good.

The rain water is fouling the old coil wire, replace the ignition wires.

The car stalls while driving and takes 15-20 min. to start


Could be fuel problem, electrical problem or cooling system problem. 1st thing you should do is get the trouble code from the computer. Most Auto Parts stores can retrieve the code for you. Troubleshooting is easier with a direction to go in.

While I am driving, the car just stalls. It


If its an ignition switch problem the car will stall if you wiggle the key back slightly and if you quickly switch it back will it continue running. Otherwise i would replace the main fuel relay which sometimes fail when hot, then start working again when they cool down.

1999 jetta shakes, and the it satlled while driving


i just finished working on the same problem. the person put way to much oil in it so the engine blew it throu the pcv valve into the throttle body. and would make a little puddle of oil in it so when you turn it dumps it into the combustion chamber and fouls up the plugs. so check ur plugs if their super black clean them up and check ur oil level

Why does my 91 VW Jetta stall out and lose power while driving?


I had a similar problem and the mechanic diagnosed it as a problem with the ignition coil. So you might want to get that checked.

91 Jetta starts hard and occasionally stalls out


Sounds like your alternator is starting to seize up. Remove the belt and spin the pulley by hand. If you hear a light grinding sound or the pulley is stiff then the alternators bearings are worn. Take the alternator to an electrical repair shop for rebuilding. I usually pay around $50 as opposed to $100 or more from a parts store. Look up auto electrical repair in your Yellow pages. Older VW's are known for starter and alternator failures so finding a cheaper source for parts should help you save some money.

Its the distributor module. The module in the dist. that tells the plugs to fire. When it gets hot it shuts down till it gets cool again. Had that same problem on several cars.
