Car starts first time but:wont start at all when warm.

Hi I have a 2000 VW Golf 1.4 Just recently I have found that if the engine gets to full working temp. If I switch the engine off and leave for a few minutes the car won't restart. However if I leave it for half an hour it will start first time. I have been told that there is water in the fuel but they guy who looked at the car didn't seem to know what he was talking about.

SOURCE: overheating problem

water pump. water pump. water pump. i am a vw dealer tech and on 2.0 and 1.8t beetles the water pump impeller is plastic, and what happens is usually another component, fans, fan control module (under battery tray), thermostat, fails and because the impeller is plastic with just one overheat the plastic becomes brittle and shatters, pull the water pump out and you will see the impeller in 3 or 4 pieces. replace water pump and make sure t stat opens, fans come on (a/c off) and proper water pump flow.

SOURCE: car wont start fuel restart switch where is it

You didn't mention the year but typically newer Mustangs can look here: Open the trunk. Look at the cover protecting the driver's side taillight. There will be a red button. Push that button. That's the fuel reset switch.

However, you may be having a problem with the security system instead. On the key fob, if you press the unlock button, that turns off the security and allows the car to start. If you don't have a key fob, the original key has a transponder that turns off the security when you put it in the ignition. If you have an aftermarket key, it will not have the transponder. You will need to get a new key from Ford.

Havin problems wiv my vw golf startin in mornin keeps turnin over but wont start but does wen i put jump leads on but battery seems to have powwer plus wen i put full steerin lock wen car stood still it...


Hi

the battery is weak although it may have power to turn the engine over it is not enough to make it start, it will need changing. the other fault is common with loosing revs while turning full lock. this is often a loose power steering belt or power steering rack or pump starting to fail. to be honest though they seem to last forever like this and there are a number of wheel related faults such as bottom suspension arms, ball joints and bushes that can also make the car do this as the steering is extended beyond where it's maximum capacity is.

Hope this helps
Regards
Dan

I have a vw golf mk 4, when the car is warm it doesnt want to start, When its cold it starts first time with no problems. If i manage to get the car started when its warm and put my foot on the accelerator...


It could be your coil pack. they pack up on mk3's and im sure its a similar type of unit. try cooling the coil pack down with water when the car is warm to see if it is that unit. be carefull not to get too much water on the warm engine as it can do harm to it.

'94 VW Golf 1.8 petrol - engine cuts out and wont re-start


It could be. The car seems to be flooding its self as though you are driving on the choke all the time. Replace the air filter if dirty and clean all the breather pipes. Also check the accelerator cable is not snagged and is adjusted correctly.
