Why is my car spluttering and stalling in hot weather?
When the weather gets really hot my car will run fine then out of nowhere lose all power and get all jerky then stall if I dont pull over.
I imagine its the carby. When it happens I try to accelerate and nothing happens, Maybe it isnt getting enough petrol? Then I stop and restart the car and it is sometimes okay or sometimes it will do it again 3 minutes later.
Please help its really annoying having to stop 5 times on the way to work.

Re: Why is my car spluttering and stalling in hot weather?
As the guys have said, it is more than likely boiling the Fuel in the Line / Carburettor. I had that problem a few Summers ago on my XB. I needed to make a bracket to keep the Fuel Hose away from the Block / Radiator Hose. Fixed it no worries.
