Question about 2000 Volkswagen Cabrio
Cold weather - Must grind and grind and grind the starter before engine will start. Warm weather no problem. Several mechanics have looked at it, but still no solution. Must I move to Florida or can someone help me,
Haha move to Florida. You should not have to. If warm weather starts are no problem then the problem centers around the cold start fuel-air mixture.
I'd ask for a check on the cold-start injector or valve (if fitted), the thermo-time switch, or the intake air temp sensor.
I have read of problems with dealers jerking owners around with this problem, it is not unknown with this car.
