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.

Car star when is cold but if I stop the engine after is hot it will not start until cool of again


If you mean that it starts fine when cold, but if you stop & turn off the engine (to to pop into a shop for example) then try to restart and get absolutely no turning over, then you need to replace your battery. It has a short or crack which is expanding when hot creating your problem.

I have trouble starting my 2007 HHR upon initial start-up. it sputters but after a few seconds of that it starts to run fine. I can stop somewhere turn it off and crank it again and it starts fine seems...


this could be a bad fuel pump that has a problem from sitting over night or when it cools down enough.the armature in the pump may be worn and when its cold it has a hard time turning the pump because of it being worn and when it gets warmed up enough the clearance is closer than when cold and works fine.

To start up a cold engine requires reach mixture (air-gas).In your case it seems like the choke is not working ,so cold engine cannot start.If it is an injection operated system then it must have a temperature sensor which suppose to turn the choking on when cold engine needs to get started.Either the sensor is faulty or the choke or between the two there is a faulty connection somewhere.
