I have a 2ltre 2001 Bora which turns over when starting but won,t fire from cold start. However, when I managed to fire after the 9th attempt and gave it a run, then stopped and turned it over again, it fired first time and every subsequent turn during the first 1 hr.Once I left it standing all day and tried to start it from cold, same problem, it will not fire. Can you suggest possibe causes of fault.

Problem resolved. It was the coolant temperature sensor which had failed.

Vw bora 1.6 2001 unsteady idle hot or cold does not matter, this problem has only started i dont no where to start looking for the fault. any ideas what could be causing this?


First of all you need to access the Engine Control Module (ECM) using suitable diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-COM or similar) connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's memored. DTC = Diagnostic Trouble Code. Then you will bu full informed about the root cause of the problem, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM.

2001 won't start. turns over but doesnt even act like its firing. sometimes there is a smell of gas like it is flooded. started back in jan when it was cold. replaced battery and spark plugs to no...


check the color of your spark if it is blue your good if orange replace coil dependig on your setup and if you have 1 coild or 8 coils you many have to check each cylinder seperate just pull out spark plug replace the spark plug wire have someone try to start car and lood at color of spark i should note dont hold the wire just let it rest close by

if that is ok replace your crankshaft postion sensor as it tells the cars ecu when and to what cylinder to fire spark to faulty crankshaft postion sensors 99 percent of the time wont allow car to start or very hard starts the other 1 percent

if it helps please leave good review 4 thumbs

Sounds like there was more damage present than just the head gasket. Perhaps a crack in the cylinder head. Was it pressure checked? Was the car overheated? The white smoke sounds like coolant leaking into one or more cylinders.

Your cold start valve is not opening to assist the firing. It function is to provide extra fuel to ignite the all combustion chambers easily. When the engine doesn't have this extra fuel from the cold start valve, it will take a few times to get it going. The cold start valve is turned on at the time of starting only if the ECM get the signal from coolant temperature sensor saying it is at a preset level. When the sensor is bad, it can give a wrong value so ECM think that temperature is hot so not turning the Cold start valve. Replace this coolant sensor first, then the next thing is to check out the cold start valve.
