Thread: jetta shuts off while driving

    Unhappy jetta shuts off while driving

    was driving 60-65 mph and car just shut off and then came back on, and starting doing this repeatedly until i could not drive it anymore. it is a 1995 gl aba with 320,000, had motor rebuilt at 250,000. I am the only owner of the car bought it brand new back in 95. thought it might be some type of relay or fuel problem. anybody have thoughts or comments would be helpful.

    Does the car currently run?
    Will it hold idle?
    If so is Idle sparadic?
    Have you recently cleaned or replace injectors?

    Hal sensor in the distributor? It will loose your spark pickup and just die.

    does hold idle, but is difficult to start, like it could use tune up
