Engine Mechanical problem
1984 Volkswagen Eurovan 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 128, 00 miles

On my 1984 watercooled Eurovan, when the outside temp. Is high, or if I have been idling in warm weather, the engine suddenly dies--no chugging or lurching; it just stops running. After about an hour, it will start and run, but then will die again, usually after just a few miles of driving.

The fuel pump has been replaced. The ignition has been inspected and found to be in good order, and the fuel lines have been replaced or checked out.

Thank you for your suggestions!

Hi Tom,

Such intermittent problems are usually caused by electrical failures.

I would suggest isolating the source of the problem by testing for sparks or fuel problem when it happens to narrow down the possible causes.

It could be due to bad contacts of switches or relays.
