My 2000 vw passat starts but keeps stalling

I have a 2000 VW Passat. The car stalled on the highway after kicking back a little as if I was losing power. My EPC light then came on (it has since gone off)and I was unable to start it again until the next day when it was at my mechanic who could not understand why the car kept stalling. It now starts but does not stay running long. Since then,I got the converters fixed since I needed them anyway but the car still stalls. What should I do next?

    The car did not back fire. It just kicked back like it was about to stall before it actually did. The EPC light is my concern. Just need to know what it means.

If it back fired it is possible the timing jump a tooth. If so, you'll have to have the timing sprockets placed back into the proper spots. Have your mechanic do this if it's needed. But in any case have the timing check first.

2001 vw Cabrio stalled and motor would not turn over. Battery was good


Hello Tammy, Can you tell me a little history about the car before it stalled, such as you were driving and it stalled or was it sitting idling before it stalled. And something to check in the meantime is make sure the oil level is correct. VW, has a lot of issues with oiling. Thanks and look forward to hearing from you. Allen

replace your fuel filter first. If that does not do it, then try an air-flow meter. (if the check engine light is on it may be an airflow meter.
