If and when this problem reoccurs,you need to check if its spark or fuel problem.to check for spark carefully pull off the main lead to the distributor cap[center lead],hold it near the engine with a insulated pliers,have someone crank the engine and see if theres spark.if no spark try another tci unit[common failure] which should be located under the dash near the glove compartment,if its fuel check fuel pump or return valve could be stuck open..cheers

Hyundai Excel X3 / Accent X3 has trouble starting, a lot of vibrating and shaking.


This is starting to sound very much like a blocked catalytic converter on the exhaust system. Try unbolting the exhaust in front of the catalytic unit and see if it will start and run normally. If it does then the unit needs replacing, if not then thats me tapped out for ideas.

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?

VW Golf starting problems


Most likely, the problem is the wiring. Over the years, corrosion builds up in the ground strap and positive lead to the starter (from the battery).

or the battery is old or the the starter is dying get it test at a shop for free.

Golf 4. comfortline 1.6. 2002 model.


the hunting can be caused by leaks in the intake system.
these can usually be heard with the engine running & bonnet open and a hissing sound especially when blipping the throttle.
also check the crankcase breather hoses which go from the oil filler cap to just behind the coil pack, they are prone to cracking.
re. the acceleration, ther could be a problem with the throttle control unit.this is the unit the accellerator cable is connected to.
a scan with a diagnostic tool will tell you if that is the problem.

Rev counter jumps whilst idling and then engine cuts out


Your problem sounds as if the thermo sensor....which controls the air fuel ratio when engine is cold....is faulty. It is a common fault on this model.
This is not an expensive part, and takes only a short time to fit.
Good luck
