Fires and stops

Asked by Jul 08, 2016 at 11:52 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just purchased a 2003 a4 1.8t.
It had been starting and running. Then the other
day it would fire then cut out right away.
I tried it a while later and it started and ran fine for
and drove it for couple miles.
The next day it fires up then cuts out. I have tried it
multiple times since and it won't stay running.

Have the Ignition Control Module checked. You would have to take it out and then Auto Zone could check it out. Other causes could be low fuel pressure, or the crankshaft sensor.
