    I have the same problem with my 2001 Jetta. We brought it to a mechanic and we could not afford to fix everything so we got the fuel pump and the fule sencor fixed costing us 1200 dollars. Now it stalls when comming to a stop. It runs great when it is going but comingto a stop the RPMs drop and it stalls out. What is the problem. I do not want to spend another 1000 and not fix the problem.

After reading the solution we went and bought a MAF sensor and the installed it our selves. The problem has cleared up and the car runs great now. Thank you. You saved us a **** load of money!!

Try disconnecting the MAF sensor, if the problem clears either clean the MAF with brake clean or replace it, whichever works.

1994 Plymouth laser won't move forward when in gear..


SOUNDS LIKE THE TORQUE-CONVERTER WHICH ALLOWS THE CAR TO BE IN GEAR AT A RED LIGHT OR STOP SIGN AND NOT STALL. IF YOU HEAR A RATTLING TRY TO FIND OUT IF IT IS COMING FROM THE EXHAUST PIPE OR THE TRANSMISSION. OR IT COULD BE A CLOGGED CATALYTIC CONVERTER. I HOPE IT IS THE LESSER EXPENSIVE OF THE TWO. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED

Engine stalls when put into gear. Idles rough & rich.


IT COULD BE THE POWER STEERING PUMP LOCKING UP AND STALLING THE ENGINE. CHECK TO SEE WHICH ONE OF THE PULLEYS IS NOT MOVING AS FAST AS THE OTHERS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE MOTOR.(WHILE IT'S RUNNING) IT COULD JUST BE AN IDLER PULLEY. I HOPE THIS HELPS TO FIND THE CAUSE OF THE BELT FAILURE. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING. GOOD LUCK

Stalls when i put it into gear


Is the check engine light on? If so I would have a scanner put on it and have the codes read.. Otherwise it may be hard to determine. It may be the vacuum actuator on the tranny. It would be good idea to have fuel pressure checked and also any vacuum hoses.

Rough running after rain


It sounds as thou you have moisture in your distributor.Pull the distributor cap off and let the car sit and dry out for a couple of days and see if that fixes the problem.

Car starts then stalls once the engine warms up.


You need new timing belt and gears. Buicks gears are made of plastic, and become a big glob. Nothing for the timing belt to grab onto.

Ruough runnin jetta


Did you check the timing? Also make sure the injectors are putting out the correct amount of fuel. By oxygen sensor I'm assuming you replaced the MAF (mass air flow) sensor? Are all the vacuum lines in good shape and is the EGR vavlve actuating correctly (they can get gunked up)? Is air getting into the fuel lines somewhere? Is the engine not getting enough air when the turbo isn't on? Maybe your intake is clogged up but this isn't extremely likely since you'd notice power loss at higher speeds. What was done recently to the vehicle that might have caused this?
