Car Stalling when idle in traffic

Asked by Apr 17, 2017 at 04:04 PM about the 2008 Audi A4 2.0T Quattro

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 Audi A4 that has been giving a bit of trouble. Last month we had a tune up, last week we have the fuel pump replaced, and still our car continues to stall on us. IT seems to give the most trouble when it's hot and/or when we're in stuck in traffic. The car will shake really hard and then just shut off. When we turn the key, it tries to kick over but fails. It takes at least 20 mins before it will turn back on. The engine light keeps going on and off. What could the issue be? We thought it was the fuel pump but it's still stalling.

OK.. THERE WAS AFuel Pressure Sensor Recall in June '08 JUST IN CASE YOU DIDNT KNOW........ SO THE FUEL FILTER WAS ALSO REPLACED..IM SURE IT WAS....WAS IT....FUEL LINES CLEAN / BLOWN OUT...NEW PUMP PRESSURES CHECKEC AT START (KEY ON ) AND RUN ??? FPCM (Fuel Pump Control Module) is operating properly. Low fuel pressure or volume may be the end result of a fuel supply problem including an incorrect fuel filter when the pressure regulator is integral....

HI Kelly, Fuel Filter was replaced in Jan or Feb. Fuel pump wasn't replaced until last week.
