Golf3 Idle nicely when cold. When engine is hot the vehicle stalls and dont want to ref up.


Could be the Air Flow Sensor - that controls the amount of air going to the engine - the flap that the sensor controls is holding back the air I think.... thats why it runs good cold as a cold engine needs less air and more fuel but as car heats up it needs more air- it seems to be starving for air....???

I have a 2001 Pontiac Montana minivan that is misfiring stalling and cutting out. I put in fuel additive thinking it might be the injectors and premium gasoline . Could this be a bad fuel filter?


It could be a timing issue (misfire) but it absolutely could also be either air or fuel filter. If it's starving for fuel, it's the fuel filter. If it's starving for air (too rich), it would also stall out and that could be the air filter. Basically, you need 4 things to make an engine work: compression, air, fuel, and spark.

Hello my car stalls when i stop and stalls when im turning if you start it and leave it running you can hear the car try to stall and when you press the gas to go it skip


cleaning out an air filter is not like replacing still can starve engine --need to also check possible tune up needed --plugs wires --look at cat converter possible clogging --also check and clean or replace egr valve if carboned up will cause stalling and or no start

Stalling when turn back on


all stalls end in CEL check engine light on. that is normal
but CEL glow. when engine running , means you had a failure, and it stored DTC error codes, so scan it.
lots of causes. huge list.
get a tune up , tops list.

SCAN it to be sure all sensors work. running.
all fuses in car good.
by stalls , i assume the engine stalls and engine RPM is 0 RPM.
the stall cause the whole dash to light up, all the warning lamps come
on (self test) oil , charge , CEL. come on.
what is important is the stall and the cause.

i will tell you the 3 ways.
lost electrical power to engine EFI system (seems not)
bad engine, (lost compression hot)?
bad spark , spark died.?
bad fueling, lost all fueling (starves and stalls or floods and misfires horribly and stalls (black spark plug tips are big time clue)

if non eof the rings a bell.?
get the car serviced.

this car is newer nicer car, you (we) can scan and drive and log data.
allowing faster easy diagnosis.

When i go up a hill or any slope i can feel that my winstar is back fireing. the rpm's like jump up and down like it is struggling. i recently changed spark plugs and wires. what else can it be.


Generally speaking when a car stalls out going uphill, a few things come to a mechanical mind.

1. Going uphill produces a strain on the engine and drive components, if you have the old points and coil type vehicle one could suspect a faulty ignition coil as the culprit.

2. A vehicle on an incline may be low on fuel and thus stalls on a hill because it is starving for fuel on this incline.

3. A faulty float inside the float bowl of your carburator may be the problem.
