Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle
Car has never had any issues but about two weeks ago after about a 10 min drive where everything was going fine I stop to get gas and when trying to start the car the engine would turnover but not start. After about 30 min. it started and all was well for about two days then after a trip to the post office same thing happened and after about 30 min it starts fine. Then the other day it just shut down while driving and after about 30 min started fine. After having the cam position sensor replace by a local mechanic who said this was the problem after a trip to the local pub same thing happens. From cold it has always started but after even short trips it will not start after being shut off. It has also shut down twice again..
Run a scan tool on it and make sure there are no codes, if there is codes address those problems first, if no codes.. next time it won't start check for fuel preasure. it is probably a fuel pump getting ready to go out or they may be a large amount of something other than gas clogging the pick-up sock at bottom of fuel pump.
