Bad thermo-time switch. This sensor will tell the ECU if engine is cold and will add fuel to the oxygen mixture. When it's in operating temperature it will tell the ECU for correct preset fuel mixture. Also if you have a 5th injector the ECU will know when to shut it off so you won't have a rich mixture. Also visa versa depending on the data it receives from the thermo switch.

My vw cut out and does not start for day can u help me it is not a golf it is a polo the engine turns over but does not start


I had that - it seems it is a common problem with these cars. I changed a couple of things and then scrapped it.

Since then I have heard that it is often the crank position sensor. Supposedly it is cheap to change so that would be a good start.

Mine would drive normally and then it would just die and not restart for anything from 2 mins to a couple of hours - then it would run normally for a while.

Well, there are some hundreds reasons why the engine can stop. Common ones are:
Dirty fuel filters, problems with electronic distribution, spark plugs to be changed, broken fuel pump, battery contact not in place, blown head gasket, rarely also a problem with anti-theft alarm motor lock can cause same thing.
Generally, if the car motor stopped immediately, with no additional symptoms is likely a problem with distribution ( no spark).
If you have experience in servicing your car you should start from checking if there is spark, and if petrol is being pumped regularly.
Best thing to do is always having it checked by a mechanic.
