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.

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).

When i am driving my suzuki ignis (1.3,manual,2001)in a traffic(more than 45 mins)engine starts to miss(check light indicates) and it stops.cant start it for about 10-15 mins


I have a 2001 Suzuki Ignis and I have a similar problem. When I start the engine 5 beeps are heard and the hazard lights turn off and on with each beep. Also after I have been driving for about 45 mins 3 beeps are heard and the hazard lights turn off and on again. However my engine does not stop running. I have asked people about it and they think that it has something to do with a lose wire in the security system? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

2002 Lancer OZ Rally...


I had the same problem with my 2003 Lancer OZ. The oil level and pressure were ok. Car was fine with no light when starting. After 10 to 15 mins of driving it would come on when I was stopped. It would go away when I pressed accelerator. Try replacing the Oil Sending Unit. It's about $10 and easy to swap. That was my problem.
