Thread: Car shut down while driving, now no start.

  1. #1

    Car shut down while driving, now no start.

    93 SLC
    Was at school, idled for about 30 mins. Left to get food, got about 20 feet, and the car shut down. Maybe let out a little hiss.
    The car is getting spark and fuel to the fuel rail. Not sure if it's getting past the injectors.
    Have switched the crank sensor, coil, dizzy and rotor.
    Any ideas?

    What does the diags port claim is the problem?

    Ecu relay 109. Worth changing. Will cut power to the injectors and sparks intermittently if its faulty

    I don't think the 2.0 had this relay but I'm sure someone will advise further.

    Best way to diagnose this is to scan the ECU, vag-com/OBDeleven style. Could be the immobiliser as much as anything else, but that would become clear on a fault code check.

    Throttle sensor is on the pedal, if that's what you mean. It should run smoothly from about minus 10 to plus 95 degrees as you push the pedal down.

    What about the coolant temp though?

    Well yeah it's likely. Lots of people have trouble with those things and wind up replacing them.
