Run fault codes and look for sensor problems. Have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold to check fuel pump/pressure regulator and filter.

My car is sputtering and dying. If I try to restart it, it will immediately go into sputtering/dying mode. If I wait a while an hour or so it will start up and drive fine.


When was the last time that the carburetor was stripped and cleaned? Also have you checked the fuel filter? Finally, the problem seems to come and go as the engine is run (and it gets hot) check that the fuel line and any electrical cables are well away from the hot engine as far as is possible.

Full Engine Power is no longer available. "You can continue your journey, but moderate your speed and exercise due caution. Have the engine checked as soon as possible."


Check the Air Filter, and replace it if necessary, also get your AIS(Air Induction System) checked, maybe the wrong fuel air mixture ratio is reaching the engine resulting in lower performance. If the problem is NOT in the morning's first start and its occurring when you drive the car for a few kilometers, then the engine valves have a problem.
In the next oil change activity, have your engine washed by draining the oil from it and filling the engine with around 1 liter of petrol with the oil drain clip in place, and the start your engine at idle for about 30-35 seconds, and turn it off and drain the petrol from engine by removing the oil drain clip, it'll remove all the dirt from the engine and then use some synthetic oil for engine. This whole procedure will give you loads of performance and your car performance will be like brand new again!

2006 VW GOLF TURBO DIESEL 1.9 STARTS UP GOES 5 TO 9 MILES STALLS WAIT 5 MINUTES GO AGAIN AND STALLS


Hi. It would be useful to get a code read and some live data from a decent diagnostic tool. There are quite a few possible causes including, pressure in tank - if the fuel tank can't vent pressure then a vacuum will eventually form stopping fuel getting to the engine, this will cause it to loose power and stall. Then after a few mins the pressure will drop and the process start again, easy test is when the car stalls remove filler cap - if that's the fault there will be an audible hiss and the car will start up again.

part blocked exhaust will have same problems but will more generally cause a lack of power and acceleration.
are there other symptoms? i.e only when conering or only when pulling off or stopping, engine light on/off. Jon

When driving suddenly the engine cuts out.


I heave the same problem on my Corsa B 1.0 2000, engine cuts out, and whe it happens, I hear one of the relay under the right side of the dash buzzing. After a couple of minutes, starts like nothing happend.
So far I manage to find that the speed sensor is faulty, when I tap him the car stops. I order a brand new one, but I'm not sure that was the issue.
I order also a Opel Tech2 tester from ebay and it has to arrive next week, then I can see the error code.

Service engine soon light, loosing engine power light comes on. I hear signals going off. I feel the engine losing power. I pull over and engine dies. I wait a few minutes and it restarts. I drive it...


Sounds like you need to find another mechanic. A dirty throttle wont cause a loss of power. Sounds like fuel pump to me, but you need to have a competent mechanic check the codes, and check the fuel pressure when its acting up.
