First things first - check to make sure proper fuel was put into it - a gas engine will start, run and drive with diesel for short distance. Usually the engine will begin to idle high, or just die.

Chances are:

1. You're fusable link (next to battery) came loose or is disconnected. I had this exact same year make and model truck a few years ago, and after replacing part after part, I was told to check this, and sure enough, as a few days before I was fiddling in this area (checking wires), the fusable link came loose (was not tightened all the way).

How to Fix: Easy - find the fusable link (will be right at top behind battery (along other wires, only one of it's kind though). Push the two connectors together and twist each toward eachother (one clockwise, the other counter clockwise).

If this does not fix the issue - check all battery terminal connections including the starter, ground to chassi or block (sometimes a bracket ) - just follow the negative (black/ground) wire from the battery.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

I have a 2002 vw gti golf with a 1.8T engine. We had it stall out on us at a stoplight so we took it in and they replaced the vacuum lines and said the problem was fixed. It's not it continues to stall...


simple test
start the engine and let idle
if idles ok , then put you foot on the brake
if it stalls ---replace the faulty brake booster
as with all faults in a cars
have the fault codes read first to avoid unnecessary waste of time and cash

Stalling at a stoplight


sounds like your not getting enough gas try first determining iif your getting enough fuel from the gas tank to the engine and if not you might half to replace the pump because the fuel filter is part of the pump by you might be able to find just the filter somewhere, but if thats not the case then check your injectors there could be one the is misfiring or clogged so try also during a good fuel system clean on it

The fuel pump relay will cause a stalling or no start condition. You are likely having mass airflow sensor, fuel pump, or fuel pressure regulator issues.
