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.

Chevy blazer will start then dies, wait 15 minutes it starts and runs good

Trail Blazer has a very cool 'plastic' intake on the Vortex series. I would have the intake checked out, or just replace it with a new one. Don't reccomend a used one since it was a common problem.

2000 beetle will die at random times, and will not start for about 15 minutes!

this can be caused by a bad fuel filter or dirty injectors. try a bottle of fuel injector or fuel system cleaner in a tank of gas. i suggest lucas products which can be found at any parts store.
