    That's very strange. But it's not the alternator. When you say: your car doesn't start at end of the day, did it start the next morning?

    What is the exact symptom when it didn't start? It try to start w/ a small noise, or the beetle doesn't start at all?

Its a hot start issue.
Can be related to low fuel pressure or problem with crank sensor.

Also it can be weak battery or starter.

What's the problem with my AC conditionor? I have a 2003 Acura MDX. The 1st time I start my car (in a day) the ac is working fine. After driving the car and parking it for 5 min (while the engine is...

Just a thought: If your car has 2 electric fans under the hood one of them runs anytime your AC is on. Make sure one of them is running if you have 2. When your engine warms up both will come on. Check when the engine is cold to see if 1 fan comes on when you turn the AC on. Another thing which has happened to me. I had a bad AC relay after running a while it would get very hot when AC seems to quit working try feeling the AC relay if it is a lot hotter than the other relay that could be a problem. One more thought To add Freon the car has to be running and the AC on.

Hi. Try to check first your refrigerant. One cause of this problem is refrigerant is running low. Did this happened from the time you turn on the AC? or at first AC is cold then after driving for a certain period of time the AC will get warm?

Car choke after period of running on street or highway, thought the gas could be problem but it wasnt and the engine light is on. I can let it sit awhile 5 to 10 mins and start up fine. I can not run long...

Yep, funny.. I've got the same problem. Only happens when there's been a dew point overnight tho.. (in other words, condensation on the windows) and only has happened in the morning.

The way it works for me is I'll start the car, run it for a bit.. then the RPM drops below 1000 even with the gas peddle floored. I'll turn off the car wait 10 seconds then turn the car back on and then the car will run fine for about 15 seconds.. this is basically a continues loop and only happen in the morning :(.

If anyone has a fix please let me know ->
