intermittent starting problem when engine is warm

After 3 or 4 short journeys the engine won't crank up,sometimes you get a couple of splutters other times when you turn the key it's just dead,leave the car for a couple of hours and it fires up,told i needed a new battery but it hasn't solved the problem,i believe this is happening to other VW TDI V6 engines also,anybody got any answers,it's driving me mad.

Hi,

Can you get the ODBII port scanned to see if there are any error codes logged which may help to point out the problem?

por

no error codes showing,told it could be the ECT and that they don't always show an error code,or the solenoid needs to be cleaned brushes etc,possibly new starter motor

thanks Bill

Hi! I had same problem, and got it fixed. Seams like the motors has 2 temperature sensors, onde under the motor and other behind. to make the car start, you both need to have similar temperature. Seams like the if one sensor fails, the motor won't start. And after some hour, temperature gets lower and the car will start again.

I passed about 3 months to figure out, and the car passed about a day running in the dealer to understand the problem.

After that the price for the sensor was about 60 euros, and no longer get this problem.

Hope this can help you!

I replaced the crank angle sensor and it fixed it. When I scanned it with VCDS it would not show any fault. But with a new Crank angle sensor it's never done it again.

You can access it from under the car it's a bit tight but I got it replaced in 10 mins.

Glad you sorted it G28 Engine speed sensor is also a crank angle sensor just a different term. Cheers

no error codes,reading several vw columns people saying it could be an etc needs replaced,and that often it shows no error codes when doing a diagnostic,or the solenoid needs cleaning ,starter motor possibly replaced looks like a common problem but haven't found anyone that has come up with a definite cure yet.

thanks for answering

thanks Bill
