Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Hope someone can help, I have a golf 96 1.3 chico. Car has a problem driving and suddenly cuts out like fuel starvation. The problem gradually became worse. I have replaced the following. Spark Plugs, HT leads, Fuel pump, the fuel return unit to tank, carburator kit. Rotar and cap. Symptoms started while going uphill and started to jerk and eventually got worse to only level rd travelling. Now it idles and revs up perfectly but as soon as you try and pull away and proceed forward it wants to die and needs lots of throttle pumping to start up again and idle. Please could I get some advice, stuck now.

SOURCE: Car starts then immediately idles down and shuts off

i have had the same problem at times. my car would start and then shut off. but i found that i needed oil and check my oil and it was a quater low put in some oil and everything went fine i notices that everytime the oil is low the same thing happens also depending on the position of the car being park meaning that if you are in a down hill position or up hill position i will do the same. so you have to accelarate for 1 minute to have the oil go up. i hope this works

Lack of power


There seems to be some kind of fuel (gas) starvation, check the fuel filter, check to the fuel pump could be weak.
Check the spark plugs, the condition of them will give yousome direction to go about it all.
If its whitish =lean means lack of fuel (gas) and by your explanation it should be whitish.
If its a carburator model thn it may need cleaning.
Not bad to check the distributor too.

Hope this helps!
