STOPS SUDDENLY AND STARTS ONLY AFTER WAITING FOR 15 MIN OR MORE
1999 Volkswagen Beetle
Hello, I have a 99 beetle that works fine when i first drive it in the morning but then suddenly it just decide to stop and not to start again anywhere at anytime. Last time, it just died in a drive thru. However, when i wait 15 to 30 min it starts again. I took it to the garage and he ran the tests on it, he's saying that it showes its a sensor and exhaust problem and want me to replace them both. I cant afford changing the exhaust now, plus I had the exhaust problem for years now but the car never use to do that. Do you think its possible that both problems are related ? and what if i changed the sensor only?
I wouldn't think exhaust could cause it. if it's supposedly a sensor we would have to know which code was indicated.
The usual culprit in stalls and wait to starts is the crankshaft position sensor.
That's the one he mentioned-the crankshaft sensor. Do you suggest the i only change that sensor?
If that sensor doesn't do it i'd get a power supply relay. i've never seen a crank sensor intermittantly fail.
