Question about 1996 Volkswagen Passat
My VW Polo 1998 Model runs fine for about 5 km (with or without AC on) and then suddenly looses power, gives battery warning and cuts off engine. After about 10 minutes of rest, starts without any problem. Both coolant and engine oil levels are ok and further does not give overheating warning before cutting off engine.
Any guidance to solve this mysterious malfunction would be greatlt appreciated.
Check all vacume hoses for splits.this sounds also like air being drawn from the fuel tank sender unit which could be corroded.is there a strong smell of fuel inside the car?this could also be a secondary jet being blocked in the carb if it has one.good luck
