Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

2000 Jetta stalls after 15minutes

Recently my 2000 Jetta with 120000 miles (which I love) has been stalling out after about 15 minutes of driving time. Sometimes it fires right back up but most of the time it needs to sit for about an hour then it fires up. Unfortunetly I haven't been able to hook up a code reader yet because the car won't run long enough to get it to an Auto Zone. I've looked on some other repair sites and while I found a number of other owners who report the same problem, I have yet to find a decent solution to the problem.

Any and all suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

    My 2000 Jetta TDI will stall while underway in any gear almost anytime but usually when the outdoor temperature is above 80 farenheit. Its almost like someone turns a switch!! Tachometer drops to zero even thought engine is producing rpms as car is still in motion and in gear. After a couple of minutes car starts normally but never until coil light comes on when turning the key. Mechanic has checked fuel system for air leaks, fuel pump is okay and new fuel filter installed with no change. Dealer has car now and can't duplicate problem.

    HELP!!

I heard of an issue with the fuel pick up in the tank. It has a check valve that gets hung up or freezes in the colder climates.

Car shuts of suddenly while driving. Starts back up after 20 minutes.


When the gas-cap is plugged, you build up vacuum in the gas- tank and cause the gas flow to stop.
Use premium gas only, ETHANOL in the mix is attracting moisture/water which is part of the problems.

2000 dodge avenger suddenly loses power while driving at 30 miles per hour


if you have an auto zone near you go there and ask them to run a check on it and they will hook it up to a computer thing and they can tell you one or more things that may be wrong with it. My car was doing that recently and i found out it was miss fireing on the 2nd cylinder but it still runs. It could also be spark plugs or wires. It might even be a little thing like an O2 cencer. hope this helps

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Stalls out,engine quits running


since its a 1997 your jeep has EFI, electronic fuel injection. The most probable reason for your troubles would be the injectors or a problem with the computer controling them, not allowing enough gas to be pushed into the cylinder causing stalling or lack of power, also too much gas iin the cylinder can lead to back firing and stalling. This would also explain the reason it takes so long to start back up some times, all the excess gas in the cylinder is flooding the motor and u have to wait till the gas disipates till the engine will turn over.

Hello Eran,

Normally I would jump at the opportunity to point
to the catalytic convertor as your trouble...
(or rusty muffler (has nothing to do with mileage)).

But so hot ... so fast leads me to think it is
being over fueled... If you can beg, borrow or buy a simple mechanics stethoscope you can listen to the injectors clicking.

Pick out anyone that sounds different and clear it by spraying
BERRYMANS Chemtool (see below)...
((handle it carefully... can take the PAINT off (pronto))).

Once you have eliminated the black smoke
(stuck injectors) the engine should be running
smooth enough to identify what other issues...

I would try to then OPEN the exhaust system above the catalytic converter to see if the engine runs better. Obviously you cannot drive (or even heat up the engine in that condition... but it might
tell you if the converter is STILL FAILING.

USE lots of liquid WRENCH (good 6 point wrenches)
and take your time...

Else:
Take it to a muffler shop for analysis
(just know your prices BEFORE you go)...

Hope this helps.

Stalling problem when coming to a stop


Do you know what your AIS motor (automatic idle speed) is on your throttle body.Usually held on with torx screws 2 or 3. Thses are pretty well known for gumming up & sticking. It adjusts your idle automatically under load etc. If your take it off, spray it with throttle body cleaner & be sure to spray some in the port (hole it came out of) before you re-assemble it. Sometimes this will cure it or at least improve it enough that you know your in the right area, if replacement part needed.
