Question about 1995 Volkswagen Golf

Engine stops but can start again straight away

After about 10 mins driving the engine stops dead- oil warning light comes on. Engine can start again straight away and will stop dead in about 10 mins or so. And so on. I have replaced the ignition module with no difference.

Thanks for returning back, Benimur.

I hadn't but I have had the car running in our driveway for about 20 mins with no change. After about 10 mins driving at around 50 to 80 kilos per hour is when it stops. So I gather that as it is not idling, then that may not be the problem.

Hi,

Other than those described (and that you have checked), Have you checked the "Idle Control/Stabilization Valve"? It is also sometimes called the "Idle Air Control Valve".

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My engine management light and red iol light is on, is this bad ?


Check your oil level before you drive it and destroy your engine. If the oil light is flashing, its telling you that the oil level is too low.

Don't be too concerned about that check engine light coming on if the engine is running well. It could be coming on for something as little as the gas cap not sealing and needs replaced. You never know until a diagnostic has been done on it. Go to any Advance Auto parts shop and have them hook a diagnostic machine to your vehicle to find the problem. They won't charge for this in hopes of selling you the part to make the repair with.

After driving my car 2006 chevy impala for about 20 miles the dashboard warning light oil pressure low stop engine and the oil warning light appears, but if step on break or slow down it goes out..wha


Verify that the engine has the proper amount of oil. The inertia from accelerating may be moving the oil in the oil pan away from the sensor and causing it to send a signal, then when you slow the oil levels out and the sensor go's off. I've had this happen alot with a taurus that I owned. The simple solution was to top off the oil to the correct level and the sensor did not come on again (until it ran low again, had a leaky oil plug on oil pan).

Those are troubled cars and older ones are even more troubled with problems I would sell it and get anything but a pontiac and a dodge stay away warning! warning! You got high miles on that ? Its a money drain.

Get it to the dealer or a specialist auto electrician and find out why the engine management light is on. That and the other warning light is telling you there is a significant problem with the engine!! Not dealing with it WILL cost you a LOT of money!!
