Engine Mechanical problem
1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 143000 miles
My VW is in great shape, My son and I have done a great deal of work in the last year, new coil, complete tune up (all new parts), ALL new cooling system including the oil cooler and all hoses and fan motors. We replaced both fuel pumps, new filters and flushed fuel system, idle/timing professionally set do to the CIS system and special tools needed. All vacuum hoses changed and properly routed (not sure what the previous owner thought), new battery and alternator as well as voltage regulator. Compression is great less than 2 LBS difference per cylinder (believe engine has been rebuilt), new Idle air control valve as well. It runs great (31 mpg) but I have one problem, if I do a short trip let’s say less than 1 mile and shut the car off, It does not want to restart for at least 30 minutes, if you are cranking it the problem seems to be ignition not fuel or air delivery. Help
have the same problem?
