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

How do I know if my fuel pump is gone


Here is a quick test: Turn the keys so that the car is "on" but don't turn it that the engine crank. You should be able to hear a "buzzing" sound coming from the fuel tank for a few seconds each time you turn the keys to ON. The sound you hear is the fuel pump priming the engine.
If you don't hear any sound at all, it is an indication the fuel pump is not running. Check the fuse before changing out the pump.

Another indication is if you start and the car seems to start but then engine stalls. Even if you apply the gas, the engine still stalls, this indicate lack of fuel coming in due to fuel pump not working.

My 1999 Mitsubishi galant starts but stalls after 2 seconds


Sounds like a fuel delivery problem or lack of air. Check all fuses and relays associated with fuel delivery system. Check your battery and definitely battery connections. A near dead battery can sometimes start a car, but not keep all systems running. Also a loose battery cable can start a car, but while vibrating, cannot keep it running. When you turn key to "ON" or "RUN" position, you should hear a whine sound. That is fuel pump starting and priming your fuel system. Once you start it, you should continue to hear the whine - but very faintly. Check your fuel pressure regulator and fuel pressure at the fuel rail(s). All this pass? Then move to spark (ie. Ignition system) - for a short somewhere. Check for a large airflow blockage. Seen small animals crawl up inside the airbox and die and close off the airflow. You never know. Good luck.

Whenever I start my expedition it sounds good but three seconds later it will stall out how do I fix it?


First check for a Vacuum leak. If none found, I would either have it scanned for codes, or replace the Idle bypass valve.

2001 elantra lack of power


Confirm ur fuel pump is working. Ensure ur pickup tube is not blocked. Then ensure u did not leave a rag or parts in the manifold tubes. Not laughing it happens. Is the distributor in the right spot. Etc etc. Did u rehook the alt up if removed . Is tje battery fully charged. And lastly is the fuel flowing and freash. Then recheck your work did u replace all parts right. Any air in the head gasket will make the fuel /air mixture off.
Good luck
