Start procedure is to hold accelerator half down, turn key, wait for injector light to go out, then hold down clutch pedal and start. do not pump the gas. just hold it 1/2 down. when car starts, release gas and then rev it up until the alternator light goes out.

It would be worth checking/replacing the ignition module ( see if you have a spark when it WON'T start) . Coil assy are plentiful and the most likely given your description. Very prone to over heating and shutting down. Good luck

This looks very like either the crank sensor or cam sensor is faulty. The are OK when cold but as they warm up everything expands just that little bit and if there is a break in the wiring inside them then a gap opens up and it dies. When it cools down things contract back again the gap closes the break reconnects and it works again. If it is possible put straightened out paper clips (called 'back probing') into the back of the wires at the sockets to these devices and then use a voltmeter to detect the voltages on them. Check when cold and then every few minutes as the engine warms at idle. One of the sensors will begin to reduce voltage as it gets warm, this is the faulty one that needs changing.

I got a 90 VW jetta 1.8l (german made), its got 232000 milse on it. What happened to day is I was doing an oil change to it. And I put in Gunks motor flush, and with in 1-2mins it died. It started back up,...


I would drain that and the oil out, and change the filter. The motor flush may have thinned out the oil. The lifers my have lost oil pressure due to the oil viscosity being thin from the motor flush.

Could be a worn rack and pinion, but first I would check the Ball joints and Tie rod ends. Hopefully it is one of those since they are much cheaper to replace.
