Check it ground wires. Could be loose causing it to arch and get hot

SOURCE: 97 VW Jetta right rear power window off track

There should be six or seven allen wrench screws around the edge of the door panels. Loosening these releases the retaining clips inside. You will then want to remove the manual window crank if you have one by laying two fingers flat on the door panel and pushing the ring around the base of the crank sideways. You might have to rotate around this as it only pushes one way. Next you will have to remove the two large golden screws directly under the door panels handle. If you have rear door panel speakers you will have to politely pry off the speaker grill with a flat blade screwdriver and remove the speakers four screws and the wire clip from behind the speaker. You will also have to unscrew the door lock post. Then you should be able to lift the door panel up to release the top lip of it from the door.

SOURCE: starter motor

Hey..........I was having problems with my starter this summer as well I ended up putting 6 starters in. Every time you buy a starter for this car it should come with a new bushing.......the bushing is hard to get out but must be replaced. And yes you will need a bushing extractor tool which you should be able to rent from your car parts store and then return for a full refund when your done. If you have any more questions let me know. Like I said I have put six starters in my VW Jetta. I could do it with my eyes closed.

SOURCE: how to install a bov on a 2000-2004 vw jetta

It is not wise to install a BOV on a 1.8t since it could cause problems with stalling in between shifts if it is vented to the atmosphere. The most recommended aftermarket solution is a new diverter valve (ex: Baileys, APR etc). If you still want to install the BOV they sell kits for the ssqv that mounts it to the charge pipe and routes the air back to the intake.

1997 ford ranchero outback heat gage not on hot but cuts out starter


Didn't find 97 ranchero in US automotive database. Is this a US vehicle? I looked for wiring diagram? I'd have to check starter motor wiring circuits and make sure engine isn't trying to seize when it gets hot or starter motor.

97 Chrysler.cirrus starts runs good,when you shut it off it won restart unless it sets for about an hour. Head lights,over head light, Windows ,dash light all work ,but it won't crank over.


Starter motors and solenoids often sieze when hot towards the end of their service life. You may need to replace the starter. How many times will it start in a row Without running it long enough to heat up. If it will start four or five times cold then fail after warming up and the alternator is charging the battery at 13.5- 15 volts you got a bad starter.

Truck runs then after a few mins ya shut it off and it wont start back up intell it sits a while


sounds like your protective starter shield was removed during previous starter replacement at one time and wasn't installed back. What's happening was when engine is hot the starter solenoid gets fried then, when its cold again it goes back to normal application. The job of the shield is to protect the starter from being heated from exhaust manifold right above the extreme heat. Another possibility is your starter relay to the solenoid but the fact that it starts again its the solenoid problem. Good luck

I have a 97 voyager , it starts up cold first tap of the key , but when it warms up and i shut it off them try to restart it nouthing , motor doesent turn over , I replaced the starter, fuel pump , starter...


I see why your questioning why now for heat shield but I'm trying to narrow down the possible causes, as like you, it doesn't make sense to me, after replacing all those parts, unless maybe one is faulty. For years they used a heat shield over starter, now, not so much, but you'll have to look at location of your starter in relation to exhaust heat, and decide whether you feel it's necessary or not. As in other post , are you getting any clicking noise of any kind, when trying to start hot?

Engine and hood extremly hot new thermostat installed and temp gauge working properly why so hot?


Make sure you're using proper amount of coolant in the water. You could have dirty fins or something blocking the front of the rad preventing it from cooling enough or might be rad clogging up. If gauge goes over half way then I'd worry. I'd remove rad and use rad cleaner or get it cleaned professionally.

The starter solenoid is getting too hot. Either wrap the starter with a heat shield or see about installing a remote starter solenoid.
