Question about Cars & Trucks
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.
It could be you iat sensor your idle air temperature sensor try replacing that im not 100% sure but try that if you want to

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.

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.

if you have a pd engine and you say that it miss fires i would change the wire loom to the injectors if it persists the air flow meter is on the blink, has you car ever gone into a limp mode status were you couldn't rev then check your turbo ,this may sound strange but just had a 150bhp tdi which was remapped with a very simular problem

it starts from cold because the auto choke is on ,allowing a richer mixture ,try removing the sender unit in the tank and seeing if the connection from the pump to the outlet connection is ok or leaking causing a loss of fuel pressure
