Your starter is bad. Replacing it will fix your problem. The solenoit is kicking in (click) but thermal expansion (heat) is exxaggerating an internal problem. When its cold, the internal tolerances are larger.

Bad cam shaft senser


You could have a faulty engine coolant sensor or intake air temperature sensor. Fuel injectors clogged or dirty flooding engine.
Clean fuel injectors, replace fuel filter and air filter, and see if the problem persists.
If it does ECT sensor is bad. If CMP sensor was bad, the vehicle won\'t start whether cold or hot. CKP senso and CMP sensor work together if either one fails, the vehicle won\'t start. Have the vehicle code scanned.

When she cold she'll go when she hot she won't start,take a hour for her to cold down before starting


I had a car that did that to me, turned out to be the battery. It was getting old and needed replacing. You could clean the contacts for the battery as well, might help a little. My car ran for a hour or more but if I stopped and tried starting shortly after I was toast. Had to wait 45 min. or more to start. Hope this helps.

1990 Volkswagon Jetta won't turn back on after long drive.


Then you have a start up problem and it reside with the cold start valve,The cold start valve operates even if the vehicle is warmed up,the cold start valve can be plugged up,or even have a bad connection,The cold start valve operates by a thermotime switch.This switch located on the near bottom of the radiator may have gone bad or disconnected,Here is the easy cost effective route, replace them both,it will cost more to trouble shoot it than just replace it.
