Question about Cars & Trucks
It is a 2005 Volkswagon GTI 1.8T. Sometimes I can drive 13-15 miles and upon arrival and turned off won't start again until 20 minutes. Other times can drive 5 miles and it will suddenly stop, again will start after 20 minutes. Other times it seems to stop running then starts up again, with EPC light, oil light (Had oil change recently and new clutch, flywheel, pressure plate replaced and valve cover gasket done as motor oil was leaking), and beeping going on, on instrument panel. I bought it used in August 2014 with 123,000 miles. What can be causing this problem?

When the gas-cap is plugged, you build up vacuum in the gas- tank and cause the gas flow to stop.
Use premium gas only, ETHANOL in the mix is attracting moisture/water which is part of the problems.

Testimonial: "I have been using Premium, I thought maybe it would be the fuel line, such as filter, pump, or pressure control of fuel. I did two Lucus gas treatments in a row to and was thinking it may have loosened debrie in the gas tank and intermittently clogs the fuel system?"

try haviing your alternator checked advance auto parts can check it while its on the car and the can check the battery too. if thats not it it may stall due to a loose battery connection or a loose ground strap. if it stalls and everything turns of (electrical) it may be a connection or ground strap.
