Question about Volkswagen Jetta
I have trouble to keep the engine running while driving. This would only happen periodically, especially when I take a close corner, after which the engine just switches off. Normally the car would just start again when I turn the key in the ignition and I would continue driving. Occasionally, the car would not be able to idle, once I remove my foot from the gas pedal. I have had the wiring checked and replaced under the battery, and I also had to fix the mechanism to open the driver's window (electrical). Also, I can't recall having the fuel filter changed. Is this an electric problem, or is it rather that the filter and spark plugs need replacing?

The first thing you need to do here is have the engine control module scanned for fault codes, this is key to the diagnosis of the problem.

i had a 94 that ran into problems like that with very rough idles and misses. i get about five different codes from injectors to oxygen sensor. turned out my negative wire from the battery was so corroded inside the insulation it was causing all sorts of problems. bought new cable and ends from canadian tire $40.00 and installed (had to clean the connection to the block with sand paper) but fixed all my problems after that.
