1999 Jetta, random stalling, any ideas?
Hello! Let me start of by saying I don't have a lot of knowledge about cars but am looking for any help. I have a 1999 Jetta that I would like to have last a bit longer. It has 92,000 miles and seems to always have something wrong. Here is the latest... it randomly stalls. There is no conistency to it. It can go for a couple of weeks and run just fine, then out of nowhere stalls. The last two times I was idling, once to pull out of a parking lot, the other time just sitting in the parking lot. This last time I noticed it felt a little "rough" just before it did it. But it does nothing else, just stops as if you turned off the engine.
I get no check engine lights, nothing. After it stalls, it takes a couple of tries but then it starts and is fine. I have taken it to a VW expert mechanic who has no ideas, says there aren't any error codes. The only current thing I do know is wrong with the car is that they said my booster tubes (is that right?) are cracked. That was discovered on visual inspection, not through any error codes.
I know this is like finding a needle in a haystack, but does anyone have any ideas?
