I have a 2000 beetle car cranks bit doesn't start after sitting for awhile. Give it a few shots of starting fluid and it fires right up and runs fine. Once it's been running and gets warm i can turn it off...

Next time it won't start after two hours, push your gas pedal all the way to the floor and see if it starts. If it starts, it could be a fuel injector or fuel pressure regulator issue.

91 acclaim v6. starts and runs good, but once its been running for awhile (hour or so), and i turn it off, it doesnt want to start back up, or does and dies. wait 2 hours and it starts right up. recently...

Sounds like either you have a clogged fuel line and or clogged fuel filter or the fuel pump is failing. What happens when the vehicle runs the fuel pump heats up, as it heats up it produces less and less fuel for your car. Eventually ti stops working until its cool again on faulty pumps. Given the age of your vehicle I would say you need to replace both pump and filter.

Starting problems

In the past, waiting for the fuel lines to pressurize was the only way to start fuel injected cars. Newer cars are designed to keep the line pressurized after you turn it off, and there is no need to pressurize upon restarting. Seem like your vehicle is losing the pressure gradually after shutting it off. Gasoline pressure can only be lost 2 ways: 1) A broken line, with fuel dripping to the floor, which, obviously you can see and smell, or gas going back into the tank due to a faulty pump or pump installation.

95 f150 will turn over but not start. If it sits

Sounds like fuel pump or fuel pump relay but most likely pump. If the pump get too hot after running, the pump will not build up enough pressure to start but after sitting, it will cool off enough to build up the proper fuel pressure.

Another thing to check is the ignition module for the distributer. They are known to heat soak also however you typiocally get a cut out or miss feel when those have issues.

Car starts but turns off after a 10 min or so.

This definitely sounds like a fuel pump/filter issue. Good news if it's the filter, it's only about 10 dollars to buy a new one and about 5 minutes labor, including jacking up your car.

Fuel pumps cant be a pain in the arse at times, others are fairly easy. Best way to determine if it's the fuel pump, run over to Canadian tire and pick up an ohms meter. Test the fuel pump that way.

Fuel Pump issue with 95 WRX STi

On both cars, check the fuel pump/guage harness connector under rear seat - the old fuel pump draws too much current and melts the connector causing poor conatct & voltage drop off. Easy to see usually, just cut the two fuel pump wires from either side of the connector and re-join with new crimp connectors, or solder joint.
