Question about Cars & Trucks

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.

Where is the oil pressure sensor of vw golf 1999


The sensors are usually found on the oil filter flange housing with the oil cooler. Also there are two dynamic sensors to measure pressure below 2000 rpm and above 2000 rpm so it could warn you of pressure loss within those two ranges.

VW Golf Mk4 1.4 16v Oil Light Warning on Dash


Measure your oil at normal operating temp, without the engine running of course. This will give you a more accurate reading once the oil has circulated in the system.

The system works like this:
  • With the ignition on, the oil pressure indicator light on the dash should come on and flash. Once the engine is started, the light should go out and stay out as long as the engine is running.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 0.3 bar or 5 psi when the engine is running below 2000 rpm, the light will flash.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 1.8 bar or 27 psi when the engine is running above 2000 rpm for more than 3 seconds, the indicator light will flash and the buzzer will sound.
If either this two warnings occur:
  • The engine should be switched off immediately and the oil level should be checked.

VW Golf 2000 1.6 16v automatic. Coolant temp. too low.


Is the heater nice and hot when the needle shows low temp? If the cooling fans turn on and the heater is hot, that leads me to believe the coolant temperature sensor is bad. You should try replacing that sensor. They are only $6 usd here. As long as your check engine light is not on and your fans are running, this will not hurt your car... but this is something you should fix soon if you can. Make sure the engine is cold when you replace the sensor

Hi, I have a 2000 2L Golf and had full service (cam belt, water pump etc) completed 23/03/09...Oil Presure light came on today and found dip stick is dry???...Some evidence of water in oil under cap but...


Water under oil cap is normal when the engine doesn't get hot enough to evaporate the moisture from the inside of the engine.
Fill oil to the full mark on the dipstick and keep an eye on it , Part of me is wondering if the Tech filled it to the correct level after he serviced it.
If it isn't smoking and not leaving oil on your drive then it should be O.K.
I hope this helps
