My dad has a '92 2.0 16V automatic Passat that has a weird running issue.
It'll fire right up and run just fine. Take it down the road, it'll die. It'll fire right back up and go down the road. It'll keep doing this, but you're able to baby it home. The car idles beautifully, but seems like it has some hesitation.
Could it be the hall sender? Or something else? Any help is appreciated

Re: (Jaceb-GT)

Possibly, or it's possible your intank pump has failed. I had a GLI that crapped out on me on a hot day. I waited 'til after night fall and the car ran fine the rest of the trip. I replaced the pump (tested bad) and never had the problem again.
