Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

Car starts but immediately stall out

-15F temps...car wouldn't start - tried getting it jumped but it still wouldn't start - had it towed to a warm bay in a service station where it sat overnight. Car would then start easily but would immediately stall out every time. Is there a key code that needs to be reset or is this something in the fuel line...?

Why does my car get to its normal temp and cut off?


Does it immediately restart or is there an extended crank to start it back up? Is the check engine light on? If so, have the codes scanned to see if any problem areas have been found by the computer. A cold engine requires more fuel and as the engine warms up, fuel is trimmed back/reduced by the computer. You may have a vacuum leak causing the stall/dirty throttle plate/ or it could even be an electrical issue to/from a sensor

Why does a 1995 foed mustang gt just stall and wont restart.


Very late but for anyone else with this problem. I used to have this occur when I drove around for a bit. I'd drive and after 5-20 mins the car would just stall on me. It wouldn't start immediately and sometimes just waiting an hour or 2 and trying again made it start and drivable for a few minutes again. The problem was the ignition coil. I spent over $1400 changing parts to find out it was an $18 fix and took 10 mins to swap out. If the rpms do jump around a lot then yes the stator would be the problem. If it just stalls even while driving, it's the ignition coil. If neither, test the voltage regulator. Hope this help. Happy driving!!

88F250 4x4 5.8L FI 5 speed. A friend has this & the starter went out. I replaced it & the solenoid. No big deal right? I returned it & the next day he called me & told me that the...


Its a solenoid...it engages the bendix and truck starts...bendix should retract because power to it gets shut off by ignition switch going to "run".

Only way bendix would stay engaged or get a signal to keep turning ???
Bad contacts in ignition switch...maybe ??
Start relay in under hood power distribution panel has hot or welded contacts ?

I've gotta think about this one...hope this gives some help...

check intake manifold air temp sensor and engine coolant sensor...one may be out of range but not enough to turn on dash light. tests and specs can be found in chiltons or haynes, test is done with digital multi-meter.

BMW 325xi; 160k; check engine light on-->next day, wont start!


I would try to jump it to see if the starter engages and the engine runs, if it does you have a connection problem between the engine starter and the battery, if it does the same thing with cables then you will probably have to tow it in to the shop. I do not think your problem is related to cold weather, but it could very well be related to the check engine light. Exactly what the check engine light is on for I can not say with out a code, but I agree with your thinking about taking it to the shop. Hope this helps, let me know.
