My vw w8 engine is stalling while driving. If you try and start straight away it won't fire, leave it for about a minute and car starts and drives normally.

Same problem for me. The car would idle at about 2500 when started from cold and about 3 miles on would not idle at all, resulting in the revs dropping off when changing gear or stopping. Also rather jerky in top gear unless thrashed - numerous trips to the garage for air idle valve, injectors etc. but still a problem! Have just found out that GVs are a bit prone to carbon build up in the throttle body - mine was almost blocked - it now feels like a different car.

SOURCE: 2004 Envoy xl stalls when making turns

this is caused by slow engine idle speed, do the procedure below.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: 91 Saturn stalls while driving

I'm having the same problem, so far what i can come up with is the IAC system ( intake air control) either the IAC valve or the stepper motor that the IAC valve sits on. I have already replaced valve and it is comming up code 35 IAC system. I'm thinking now i have to replace the stepper motor.

It would be worth checking/replacing the ignition module ( see if you have a spark when it WON'T start) . Coil assy are plentiful and the most likely given your description. Very prone to over heating and shutting down. Good luck

thats because the car is not at operating temperature.you will get a slight drop in power and drivability until its warm.do not try to use any more than 1/3rd gas pedal until its warm anyway.your car has an automatic cold start device (choke)that operates when the car is cold.

Mitsubishi Triton V6 lacks power on acceleration


full power is only achieved when the engine is fully warm(operating temp).so if you accelerate more than, say, a third of the gas pedal,the car will feel sluggish.
this is more apparent when first starting the car in the morning in winter.almost like the car is going to stall.
most wear in the engine is leaving it to idle when cold you should always drive the car straight away from cold.then when hot turn on the a/c if required....

Smokes at idle, not while driving.


you have hit the nail on the head ,starting a cold engine and just leaving it to idle takes a while to warm up ,but driving it straight away which is what you should do get the engine warm quicker ,also reduces your carbon footprint.When the engine is cold it burns oil till the correct clearance and tolerances are reached .

First check all wires for any thing loose.
The muffler blowing up leads me to think the engine is so far out of time the PCM cant correct it.

REally you need to get it to a good mechanic.
