Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
Car was run out of petrol,since then will run for 5 mins then stops . will start and run again if left for 15 mins then stops again
*Assuming everything ran fine prior to running out of petrol*, the most likely cause is air in your fuel lines or fuel injectors.
For a Volkswagen, the most sure fix is to have a Volkswagen mechanic inspect and maybe clean and prime your injectors. If you are handy enough, you could possibly do this yourself, but it can be quite hard.
Also, there are some additives that claim to be able to fix this in a bottle, but there efficacy is marginal at best.
Last, this problem can sometimes work itself out, though the process of waiting for the bubbles to clear (you may have to endure many quits by your engine) can be more than frustrating.
I hope this helps.
