Pull the fault codes in the ECM to see what is causing the problem, It WILL be found in the error code. Does the engine do this when driving down the highway or only when moving slowly or stopped.? An 'oxygen sensor malfunction will NOT cause the engine to stop. Next place to look is the crankshaft position sensor.

It could be a number of things--from a failing fuel pump to a failing ignition component, PULL the FAULT CODE. Don't guess.

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.

Oxygen sensor

These are hard to get to...mounted on the exhaust manifold or exhaust piping in the engine compartment. Usually rusted on, and in a spot hard to reach.

If possible, spray the sensor threads with rust penetrating oil and wait a day. Spray again, in a few hours attempt to remove the part.

Remove the electrical connection wire.
Should come off with a closed end (box) wrench.

2000 Grand Vitara breaksdown, backfires and dies while driving after about 30 minutes. Starts again in about an hour. Changed fuel pressure regulator. Made no difference.

The check engine will be on if the key is on but engine not running . This is normal. If the check engine goes out when the engine starts there are no codes present . Did you check the fuel filter . Sometimes when a filter is dirty there is sedement laying in the filter canister . When the pump starts working the flow picks up the sedement and plugs any remaining open screen and stops the fuel completely . The engine stops . When the flow stops the sedement falls back allowing flow again. and the engine will run for another while . If the filter is old it should be changed anyway . Also when the engine stops check to see if there is spark at the spark plugs while cranking the engine .

I have a 2000 1.8 Turbo Volkswagon Jetta with a check engine light that I can't seem to get to turn off for good. We scanned it and the code was for an oxygen sensor. Switched it out along with an...

There are 2 oxygen sensors... one before the cat, and one at the back end of the cat. If the code says "heated O2 sensor" then that is the one at the back of the cat, and is more challenging to replace.

It is a different sensor, so you'll have to buy the correct one for the heated sensor.

Mine has 217,000 miles. Has run great up until some time ago, when it started driving roughly only in wet weather. Now in dry weather, it starts fine, but drives roughly after warmed up (15-20 min) and...

The knock sensor NEVER causes a drivability problem. DO NOT change it. Instead, clean the MAF, Mass Air Flow sesnor that's on the air intake tube near air cleaner. It is coated with varnish. Spray with carb cleaner several times and gently, gently brush the wires. Theya re glass coated. Be careful.

Then disconnect battery for 2 hours and then reconnect and drive for 0 miles for computer to relearn engine contrils.
