VW Caravelle fuel relay cutting out seems to be in hot weather

Our 2000 W reg VW Caravelle Auromatic dieselstarts up and then runs perfectly well until in hot weather you turn it off and then try to retstart. The engine turns over but will not start. Have had the fuel relay rewired as was told there was a loose wire but it is still happening. Seems that if the car is left for 20 minutes or so it starts again but not always.

Hi....

Have done a lot of these issues. I am sure for 90% it is the fuel pump. Get it checked.
You can also check if you know where is the fuel return line from the engine.
Next time when your car refuses to start open the hood and check the return the fuel line.
The fuel pressure should be good if not the car will not start.

Let me know
Thanks
Smith

My 1993 Honda Accord LX was having problems to start during hot weather, I changed the fuel filter, distributor, rotor cap, rotor and now it seems like gas does not get into the engine. What's wrong?


The Main relay on your vehicle is defective. When the relay is operating while the engine is started and running, it gets hot. Add the hot weather to the relay and they break inside. The relay is located on the side firewall driverside above the left kick plate inside the car,and is secured with a 10mm hex cap screw (bolt). Replace this relay, and your vehicle should start.
It looks like this;

I have a 2003 VW Jetta 1.8t that is overheating. Replaced the thermostat, temp sensor, water pump. Fan will run when AC is on, but haven't had it running in hot enough weather to see if the cooling fan...


Assuming engine tune / mechanical condition is not the cause of the overheating:-
Ensure cooling fan is cutting in at the appropriate engine temperature - check operation of the fan controlling relay,
Ensure fan switching control temperature sensor is serviceable,
Ensure cooling system is filled properly, taking care to bleed out air where necessary,
Ensure coolant pressure cap is of correct rating and in serviceable condition,
Check coolant hose on suction side of waterpump is not softened and collapsing at engine revs above idle,
Ensure radiator core is not blocked or cooling airflow inhibited by insects etc.

Vw bora 2000 w reg wont start?? help please


Possibly air in the fuel lines. Possibly Fuel Injection Pump Case Relief Valve has come apart (funny looking ,10mm bolt with 2 round sides on left side of Injection Pump). Great site for TDIs - www.tdiclub.com - forum thread on this very problem. Great people will help get you going.
