I'd check ignition, like spark plugs, wires, rotor and cap, then maybe coil, next look to the fuel, might be a clogged fuel filter, bad gas, or slow fuel pump

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

Car stalls out


check your pickup coil in the distibutor, if the wires are worn they can seperate causing the engine to stall, when the engine starts the vacuum advance moves the base plate where the p u coil is attached, when the advance starts to move the plate the wires can seperate causing it to stall out

Stalls after start up, Stalls when braking, then runs fine after a few minutes


Check the ECU engine temperature sensor. If it thinks the engine is hot, it will struggle to run when cold.

Hi

If your car stalled while you were driving it, look for an obvious reason first. Check to make sure you have fuel in the tank (if your gas gauge is working). Do not sit there and crank the car over, trying to get it to start, as you will quickly wear down the battery if it's not already bad.
Check the probable causes for this kind of problems:-
Ignition
The ignition system is composed of: ignition switch, neutral safety switch, security bypass, plugs, wires (if applicable) and a coil, or in the case of coil-over systems, many coils. The ignition is also tied into the computer. The crank and cam sensors tell the engine where top dead center is. Though these sensors do not usually cause a no start, if they break, the computer will go into "limp home mode," which allows you to get the car to a service station. The car will run badly, and may stall out on you. If the plug wires, plugs or coils are bad and are causing the engine to misfire, the engine will run rough. This may also cause the car to stall when driving. Generally, it will start back up, but it may be difficult to keep the car running.
Fuel
The fuel system is composed of a fuel pump, fuel filters, and fuel injectors or a carburetor. Some cars have a throttle body---this looks similar to a carburetor and has only one or two fuel injectors in the middle of it. The injectors feed all of the cylinders. In a multi-port system, each cylinder has its own injector. Should the fuel pump go bad, the car will stall while you are driving, as no fuel is getting pumped up to the engine. Bad injectors in a multi-port system will make the car run rough, which can cause a stalling situation, but generally, the car will restart.
Other Problems
There are other problems that can make a car stall---in the ignition system, the fuel system or in the drivetrain. If the timing belt breaks, the car will stall. If the computer itself stops working, the car will stall. Neither item will allow a car to start back up until it is repaired.All vehicles have an idle air motor or valve. The idle air is governed by the computer and changes the idle. When you turn on the air compressor, you use some engine resources. This makes the idle speed on the engine drop. The computer senses this drop and sends information to the idle air to turn up the idle so the car does not stall. If this part breaks, when you slow down to a stop or to turn a corner, the car may stall.
Because the running of a vehicle is complicated, there are many more things that can cause a vehicle to stall. These are the most common things that can cause a car to stall. Other things include wiring, fuses, relays, other sensors not working properly or at all, a bad alternator or a bad battery, or an overheating problem, just to name a few.

Engine stalls


Hi, car stalling problem often means the engine is not getting enough fuel and/or too much air. A cold engine needs a fairly rich fuel mixture to start, and to idle smoothly while it warms up. Any of the following could cause or contribute to this kind of stalling problem which i would not want to exaggerate until i get a clear picture of how the car stalls.

Does your engine stalls when you stop for a traffic light or when idling, or your engine just stalls unexpectedly while driving?
Answering the question will help me determine the cause of the problem.
