2003 Chevy Blazer dies after starting. About 3 weeks ago my blazer started dying when I started it or I stopped at a traffic light. I took it to the shop and got a tune up. Now its doing it again. This...

It's starving for fuel. The main component there is the MAS -- mass airflow sensor, very common to go bad. Tap on it and sometimes that will make it rev lower or stall. It's inline with the black tubing that goes to the air filter. They run around $200 but are very very easy to put in yourself with a little care.

On my '83 Volkswagen Jetta that I am trying to get running-- It will run for about 3-4 seconds and then stall. Any ideas?

You have the bosch CIS fuel injection system, it's a cold start issue which may point to either a bad fuel pump check valve OR an issue with the warm up regulator.

You will need a special $$$$$$ fuel pressure guage to check ALL the pressures and then you will find the exact cause.

VERY expensive parts and labor is just as expensive.

95 Aurora, Stalling while driving anyone know why?

i had the same problem with a little more symptoms, that you have reported.
i found that there was a recall on he fuel line. the stainless steal line wares down and begins to leak. This issue affects the oil pressure and causes the car to stall.

My jetta stalls

I have seen timing issues with the 95 jetta when your crank and cam marks are off a tooth, when you reset this it will not start. Remove the harmonic balancer and the lower crank sprocket, look for the sheer pin to be missing. replace lower sprocket if sheer pin gone. when set your crank and cam marks and put timing belt on. Tip, there is a timing plug on the top of the bell housing near block, usually green, remove plug . look for mark on flywheel and on tranny. if all three line up your timed correctly. good luck.
