2001 beetle 2.0 dies on freeway for a few seconds

Dies while driving on freeway about 70 mph or more for about 3 to 5 seconds. Looses about 20 mph of speed then kicks back in and acts normal. No codes. Rpm's seem to read the same for those seconds. Then kick back to where your foot is when it cames back on. Any ideas?

Several things can cause a car to die. The fact that you don't have any engine codes eliminates some of them. First thing you should try if you haven't is change the fuel filter. Make sure there are no damp, or damaged electrical components. It could be faulty spark plugs, or wires, or a vacuum leak. Check carefully under the hood for vacuum leaks. With the engine running, wiggle all the vacuum hoses around and check for cracked loose or broken hoses. They will make a hissing sound when you find it. A stethoscope, or a length of fuel line held to your ear can help a lot. Check all intake bolts for tightness too. Good luck.

While driving 2003 vw new beetle the engine cut out for a few seconds described as a surge or **** just as the blue warm up light goes out. No warning lights of impending danger. Vehicle has 54,000 miles.


it could be just contaminated fuel. keep an eye on it and if it happens again. let me know. also keep notes(i.e. time of day, cold/hot, driving/starting, just fueled, raining). all these can play important roles while diagnosing.
