Fuel injected Super Beetle stalls when warm

My 78 Super Beetle stalls when warm and will not start until cooled down. The problem has worsened over a few years. First the problem only occured on warm summer days. Now it also happens when temp is around 0C. I have replaced CHT-sensor. No improvement. I suspected faulty mass airflow sensor and took it to Bosch. They confirmed MAF-sensor problem. Sensor now replaced, but problem is still there. What next? Morten.

the mass airflow sensor is always on the air intake tube....it has wires plugged into it and when you look inside it ,it has either 3 or 4 thin strips of metal or a honey comb look,thats want you clean....bty cleaning it usually doesn't help.

2.8 engine Would start when cool, but stall after


89 cierra? It should be DIS ignition so you can't have the timing too high. You said it has fuel and spark. Fuel pressure and injection pulse. Does it try to start if you spray carb cleaner into it?

1995 CHEVY 1500 6.5 TD NO START CRANKS OVER FINE DTC CODE #35 NEED TROUBLE TREE FOR NO START CODES


Found this online: GM Technical Service Bulletin #77-63-06Ab states that: "stalling, hard starting, and hesitation are symptoms of a failing PMD (Pump Mounted Driver) module." These symptoms usually (but not always) set a code 35 or 36 in the 1994 - 1995 models, or a code 1216 in the 1996 - up models. Often when this problem is diagnosed at a dealership or repair shop, the customer is told that the injection pump needs to be replaced. But in most cases, the PMD module can simply be replaced for a fraction of the price. ds4chevyfsd.jpgThe PMD module, (also referred to as the "Fuel Solonoid Driver") has been a major problem for Chevy / GMC 6.5L diesel owners since the introduction of the 6.5L electronically controlled DS4 fuel injection pump. It has been determined that heat is the primary cause of PMD failures. The PMD is mounted to the side of the fuel injection pump from the factory. But the injection pump does not provide adequate cooling to keep the PMD functional. Once the engine begins showing symptoms of hesitating, stalling and hard starting, the problem will only worsen with time. The problem only becomes more serious when considering the potential danger of your engine stalling in a situation such as pulling into heavy traffic or descending a steep hill and losing the use of power brakes and steering.

Hope this helps!

1989 truck stalls when hot.


Have you chg. fuel filter? If so, best to do a fuel pressure test, sometimes( not always) when the pump gets warmed up they can loose a little pressure and thats all it takes just a few # under recamended p.s.i and the truck quits running, you may hear the pump run but its not putting out the correct pressure until it cools down and it starts working again, but after a while quit all together.

Vibration when in gear, and stalling.


The problem is the torque converter solenoid. I had it happen on my 94 Cavalier a few years back and was a cheap fix at the local car mechanic. What happens is the transmission warms up and hits a certain speed where the solenoid engages, but then it sticks and won't disengage until it cools down sufficiently. When it sticks, it causes the car to shake when slowing down and will snub out the engine if you come to a stop.
