Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta

2 Answers

1997 Jetta, i started it this morning and warmed her up, drove up the road to the store, turned her off.. now she starts, stutters and stalls..

She started fine this morning. I warmed her up, she ran fine up the road to the store. I of course shut her off..When i tried to start her she stuttered and stalled.. I had the gas pedal to the floor and she stuttered home. Now she starts but won't stay started..I have to really put the pedal to the floor to keep her from stalling.. And when we hobbled back home, i had to keep pushing the gas pedal... but she wouldn't go.....

Could have plugged exhaust system or fuel filter clogged or could have contaminated fuel which has water in it.

SOURCE: jetta 95 won´t start

Moisture in your ignition system can cause this to happen , start with a cap/rotor and wire replacement. More then likely this will cure your rainy day blues.

Hello, Im here because I have a volkswagen jetta


No one can help on a car with 150,000 miles

You need about $500.00 worth of testing, to see
if is worth keeping the motor mechanically

People get rid of vehicles for a reason & your not
told why.

Start with a cylinder contribution test, followed by
a cylinder leak down test

If the valves are no good,rebuild the entire motor

94 subaru legacy wagon stalls when engine is warm then starts when cool


Have the battery and alt tested for free at the local parts store.
Tell them what it's doing, and start suspecting a fuel issue.
Could be getting the right amount of fuel but not burning it. (plugs, wires, coil)
Or could not be getting enough fuel.

Still hard to say, so get the charging/power system checked first.
Let me know what you find out as I'm real curious now.

Same happened to a friend and it was the fuel pump....
Same for another friend and it was 2 bad coil packs.

Diesel engine keeps stalling


Hi!
Looking at the brief description of your problem it may be your heater plug timer? when you start the vehicle from cold the glow plugs have to heat up. These are little pencil type plugs that are mounted in the cylinder head they are timed and glow rather like the bar of an electric fire so the hot spots in each cylinder warm and give precise combustion. If the timer/relay gives only a short burst of power your car will start as normal but if the cylinders are still cold/cool when it shuts off the Vapourised Diesel doesn't ignite correctly so rev's drop and if you can't raise them will stall. When you turn off the ignition and back on again the timer/relay kicks in glow plugs glow and bingo your'e off again. I presume after the first stall everything is back to normal? if not how far up the road is it before engine dies? also how long after starting does it stall?
I hope you don't mind the Epic, Oh! if your 306 continues try starting the car and waiting a while listen for a click like a switch or if the interior light is on when it brightens after a few seconds turn off the ignition then back on and start then see how far you go!
Good Luck!
