I have serviced this problem before. With engine hot unplug the coolant temp sensor, Located on the thermostat housing (there may be two).If the car begins to improve with sensor unpluged replace the sensor probe( both if two).
DO NOT drive car with sensors unplugged, car will overheat.

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

1992 yamaha waverunner 111 wra650q Runs great until you shut it off or it shuts off? Ok as long as you restart in a few seconds it will fire instantly , if you wait 5 minutes or longer it will turn over...


Not real familiar with waverunners (this is a car and truck section after all), but remember that when you have been riding and stop engine it gets much hotter. Could possibly be coil "Heat Soak", or even a fuel system vapor lock issue caused by a pinhole leak in a line or a bad gas cap. Not very confident in this, but the best I got. Try posting in the waverunner section.

I agree it sounds like the magnet for the cam sensor, or a problem in the wiring harness.
I don't think the engine will run with the cam sensor disconnected since it needs that signal to set base timing. It can run without the crank sensor once the engine starts.
There is a slight chance the timing chain is getting loose and affecting cam timing too. You may be loosing plastic teeth on the cam gear.

While running my 1985 Jeep Cherokee shuts down and I have to wait about 5 to 15 minutes for all electricity to come back to the entire vehicle. Could this be a bad ignition module?


Could be a bad ignition module or could point to faulty wiring. The longer your vehicle runs the hotter some electrical components get and that's the 5 - 15 minutes it wants to cool down.

98 Corolla stalls or stumbles when cold


It sounds like you may have picked up some small debris from the bottom of the gas tank when you ran it empty. You may need to run a fuel/injector cleaning solution through the next tank of gas to clear the debris and consider changing your fuel filter too. Sea Foam is a great fuel additive and I recomment trying it full strength. Hope this helps!
