Sounds like you have 2 problems, 1) you have a weak battery, 2) fuel starvation i.e choked fuel filter or faulty fuel pump, or both.

SOURCE: Engine cuts out at a prolong idle speed.

Hi all, I had much the same problem, engine bouncing around when idling as if it were firing on a few cylinders and even cutting out completly sometimes. I found out it was the breather hose at the rear right hand side of the engine that runs to the front. there is an elbow piece at the back, this could have developed a leak or in my case it was further back behind the engine, hope this has been of use guys. one thing I would like to point out, beware of the cooling system plastice hose conectors, the outer may look fine but some of mine just brake off and crumble in your fingers, it's as if the inner plastic is destroyed by the hot collant over a period of time, i'm in the process of replacing most of mine.

SOURCE: Car starts,runs for a few minutes and stalls.

It could be the TFI (thick film ignition) ignition module on the distributor. When it restarts warm, but dies right away, it has a cranking circuit to initially fire the engine. After that, it switches to run mode, which may be be the problem circuit. Often times, when you take the cover off a bad module, it will have a bubble in the jell where the open circuit has heated up. Heat is the enemy of all electrical components and when they get warm is when the problems show up. This is my first guess. If you have access to a fuel pressure gauge, you can hook it to the pressure tap on the fuel rail and watch for a drop in pressure. It needs around 40 psi to run. Even a clogged fuel filter causing low pressure and flow can shut you down, but it shouldn't run good cold in that case either since fuel demand is higher on cold start. I hope this points you in the right direction. If not, I'd be glad to continue assisting your diagnosis.

Which way do I shift my 3L Toyota hiace fuel pump for a smoothe idle it starts fine but idels rough and moves off weak ?

Best to have codes read if the engine light is on. start up and rough idle are different. Rough idle can be different things. When is the last time you had a tune up?

Cuts off while driving

Sounds like you have a air leak, if it does it after you prime every time then it is sucking air from somewhere, it sounds very much like a fuel problem, it could be a pressure switch somewhere

Passat b5 tdi fuel delivery problem I have a problem with my 98 Passat tdi 81kw AFN motor. Car won't start, no current on fuse 28-fuel pump. When i connetc 12 volt to the fuse, i can hear the pump running...

How long are you cranking for,if you have allowed to run out of fuel, it needs to be primed, try pouring diesel into the fuelfilter, but I used tohave the 110bhp AFN passat and it would start after cranking for a while and then cut out, then start but possibly cut out again, then start and give it some throttle, should be fine after that.

1988 Mercedes Benz 300E 3.0L Gasoline F.I. ''Sputtering at Idle must have more than one car???? you don't drive the 300 atall im guessing. #1 start car drive up the road and \back to your house. #2 let it idle till problem starts. #3 once it does start with the problem keep it alive with the gas pedal. #4 once your have it safely from dying in higher rpms "rev it" like a kid would, you know like if you were gonna race some one lol. be careful not to over rev or damage engine. you should do this for five minutes no longer than that. #5 let it idle for another 5 minutes. #6 repeat every day until problem with idling decipates. it took mine 3 300e like 3 days of this. if your not going to drive the car once you get the problem out of the way. turn the car on everyday and let it idle for 5 minutes atleast and take it for a short drive once a week. they get lonelly you know lol. later on you can just turn the car on every 2 -3 days and let it idle but still take it on a short drive atleast once a week
