Patient: 93 UrS4
Conditions: Car dies shortly after running for a few minutes. Car restarts fine, but won't keep running more than a few minutes!

Driving back from the store on Saturday the car just died on the road... waited 15 min and she started again, and then died again right after. After 1 hr car started and I made it home (not far). Today I can't make it down the street.

Only change I can think of was that I put a can of Seafoam in the gas tank a few days ago with only 30 litres (6.6 gallons) of gas. Could the Seafoam be causing this problem?

Diagonstic Notes: I have good fuel pressure, no missfires.

All I can think of is the Seafom was put in without enough gas? or bad gas... but the car doesn't run ruff or anything when it's running. I don't get it...
