View Full Version : Trouble starting car with warm engine

If the car has been warmed up, and I try to start it again, it BARELY starts, with absolutely no power.

This is only when the engine is warm. When the engine is cold, it starts fine as far as I know.

I have the same problem. My dealer replace fuel sending unit checked the pressure return valve flushed my injectors and I can't seem to find whats wrong. Maybe it's my coil packs...

:wtf Does the Fuel Sending Unit have to do with it ? lol

Maybe the Fuel Pump, you meant ?

My car did something similar. It only occured if the car was partially warmed up, I shut it off, came back out in a minute or two (maybe even ten) and tried to start it back up. It would turn over, run for a second, then drop idle and die. If I tapped the gas, it would run fine. Focking annoying as hell and I never figured out what it was.

they said the pump was fine so they tryed the sending unit. Again it never fixed the problem it was covered anyways but still It's anoying when a dealer of the same manufacture fixes something that wasn't broken and charges for it. And thats why Im going to U.T.I. so I'll do everything myself.
