I had the same problem with my 97 olds 88. I would leave it off for work all day and would start up fine. If left for 15-20 minutes like you said it would not have inough power to turn over. You will probly have to replace your starter. I had the problem for about a year and finally had to replace it. got it about 10 months ago and have'nt had a problem since. You might want to have it checked out first by a professional first though. Hope this helps!

Did you resolve this?
I drive a mk3 golf GTI 8V and mine starts fine but after driving for about 3 minutes (engine warms up) it starts to misfire, the car stalls and then you can't start it again until the engine has cooled. Does this sound similar?

I had the same problem and it left me stranded and my wife several times. The only part that gives the signal to the tach also gives the signal to your ignition. Change out the crank position sensor, mounted on the lower right front of the engine by the A/C compressor. You will need to loosen up the compressor and move it out of the way, but in all roughly about a 2 hour job depending how much the compressor fights ya.

Trouble Starting


You need to check to see if the fuel pressure bleeds down, hook up a guage to the fuel rail port, turn key on for a moment then turn it off, the fuel pressure should not drop more than 5 PSI in 24 hours, if it does the fuel pump check valve is defective, this allows the fuel lines to drain down and causes long cranking to start. You will have to replace the pump to fix this problem.
