Question about 1995 Audi A6

1 Answer

My Audi will start, run for varied lengths of time then die immediately without any sputtering. The fuel filter was replaced but the symptoms persisted. I'm assuming the problem is electrical but not sure of the the probable causes. Could it be a sensor, or the alternator? Thanks

2001 explorer sport , fuel pump? vacuum leak? 619 scan tool data provided, any suggestions/solutions

The fuel pump is suspect but I believe there's also a fuel filter inline on the underside of the drivers side chassis. Fuel works off pressure so if the filter is clogged, the pressure remains between the fuel tank and the filter. Once the fuel has siphoned off between the filter and injectors, it dies but because there's positive pressure at the fuel pump, it won't come on until the pressure slowly seeps past the clog after hours. It's worth a look!

My car is sputtering and dying. If I try to restart it, it will immediately go into sputtering/dying mode. If I wait a while an hour or so it will start up and drive fine.

When was the last time that the carburetor was stripped and cleaned? Also have you checked the fuel filter? Finally, the problem seems to come and go as the engine is run (and it gets hot) check that the fuel line and any electrical cables are well away from the hot engine as far as is possible.

have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold to check for pump--pressure regulator and filter problems. Run fault codes to check for air flow sensor faults.

My dodge dakota 4.7 starts without any problem and runs great for approximately one minute. It then starts floundering and will die. You can turn it off or wait for it to die, and restart it and it runs...

Sounds like you have a restricted fuel filter that is causing your vehicle to start sputtering because it can't meet the engine's demand for fuel and then dies when fuel is depleted. After your vehicle stops running, fuel starts seeping by and you can start it again with ease hot or cold and you get the same results moments later if this sounds right replace your fuel filter.

Have you replaced the fuel filter? Having a clogged filter has the same symptoms. It is an inexpensive repair. If after that you have the same problem, have the fuel pump pressure checked. There is a test port on the fuel rail. You will need a qualified tech to do this.

Car sputters out

Change fuel filter first, if that doesn't help, check timing, and timing belt, spark plugs, and wires. Also look and listen for vacuum leaks with a stethoscope, or a length of fuel line hose held to your ear. Wiggle all vacuum hoses while engine is running, and listen for a hissing sound.

94 corvette dying while driving

almost positive its your fuel pump letting you know its time for a new one.
Could also be; control module
crank sensor
battery with internal plates touching
fuel pump relay(i would change this one regardless)
Your OBD1 should have a stored code and that will probally lead to your pump or relay.
