Stalled while driving


Sounds like the engine is starving for fuel. You might try changing the fuel filter. It also cold be water in your fuel tank. Try putting some dry gas in the tank.

2006 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0t when accelerating the motor hesitates and doesnt want to go. Problem prosist more going up hills. Check engine light is on not sure if its just an o2 sensor of if the cal co


Worn spark plugs, low spark power are a couple of possibilities but the demand for fuel is great when accelerating in the mid-gears and if the fuel system can't provide an adequate supply at the correct pressure during those conditions the engine performance will go flat.

Clearly the fact the engine light is on must be investigated, beginning with a code read. When the engine light is on the management computer has detected a problem that could affect the exhaust emissions and has switched to pre-programmed values designed to get you to the nearest dealer, or get you home.

It is always best as part of the diagnostic process to carry out any basic and routine maintenance that is due plus any other checks that might reveal pending problems that might cause further unreliability.

My car is hesitating when I accelerate when I first start it after sitting idle. I have been told it is the 1,2 shift cylanoid. What is this, how much to repair, how serious, I have taken it in to the...


What is hesitating - the engine or the transmission?

When starting the car and putting it in gear, if the transmission shifts immediately into first gear and then shifts smoothly from first to second gear, I doubt its a transmission problem. However, if that isn't the case, you will probably need a new or rebuilt transmission ($1500+).

Engine hesitation can be due to a lot of things related to the fuel system that won't necessarily show up on a code reader - for example, dirty throttle body, fouled IAC (idle air control) motor, fouled EGR valve, etc.

When i accelerate car hesitates


just wondering,, when you accelerated you say the needle went up ,,but did the car kinda splutter, or not pull away at all when you accelerated,,,if the needle goes up but the car doesnt seen to pull away then that sounds like a clutch slipping,,.. but if it just hesitates it could be lots of things ,,maybe a dodgy airflow meter..that can also make the car hesitate,,hope that helps you,,,,,

Load issues can be anywhere along the drive train. Put the car into gear with your foot on the brake and BRIEFLY press on the accelerator - if the engine misses/hesitates, the problem is with usually with the engine. If not, it's probably in the transmission, u-joints on the drive shaft or the rear differential. If it's the engine, you will need to do all the usual checks (throttle body, EGR, fuel pressure, etc.).
