Question about 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet

Open Question

1987 Cabriolet sputters

My 1987 VW Cabriolet idles fine then starts sputtering and then dies after about 20-30min and won't start. Let it sit for 10min or so and it will start right up and do it all over again. I have replaced the fuel pumps both of them, fuel filter, fuel injectors, distributor cap, rotor button, wires, plugs, air filter, ignition coil, oxygen sensor. Nothing seem to change anything. Any ideas?

Thanks
Dale

SOURCE: when I take off it sputters, up to 40 to 60 mph it

This could be water in the gas lines or, you may have wire and plug issues as well. I would take this car in for a full scale tune up. make sure they check the distributor points as well. Changing the fuel pump wouldn't hurt at all.

SOURCE: 85 corvette wont start

I had the exact same problem with mine. After replacing nearly everything i took it to a shop today to learn that I had a bad wire on the back of the distributor and the new fuel pump i installed from autozone was faulty and not providing enough pressure.

We have a 1987 Ford Econoline RV ... It starts fine but will only idle for 20-30 seconds.. When we put it in drive it sputters and quits... It also sputters and quits while idling...


Can you pump the gas pedal or spray carb cleaner into the throttle body to keep it running ?
Have you checked fuel pressure with a gauge ?

Sounds like you need a fuel pump. There is an access panel in the floor of the car to get to the pump.

I have a 1987 Ford Ranger 2wd 2.9 liter. I have had this truck for a little over a year. the truck only has 81,000 miles on it but it has this sputter out and dieing problem. When I first started driving...


I think that you need to be more specific when you say that you have changed everything... Because i'm sure that there is MUCH more that has to do with this problem then you may think.... Has the fuel pump fuel pump float pressure regulator and filter been changed out. Also has the crank sensor been changed out. What you the cam sensor?

Ran out of gas and now she won't run!


i would say that you have a bad fuel pump or if you have a carb on it the float inside the carb is stuck check these and i'm sure you will find it's one of these.
