2005 VW Passat 1.8T Slow Start when engine is warm



Hi All,

I had previously ask this question and with some advice the dealer has had the vehicle in 6 times now for this issue. When the engine is still warm after being driven, I will go to start the car and the and it has an extended crank and almost like it is a reverse stall (where it just sputters on). They have replace the temperature sensor and it helped for a little but now it is back. The kicker is that the check engine light does not illuminate at all. I am really trying to have this addressed correctly before my warranty expires. Let me know if anyone has any suggestions.



I had a similar problem with my 1992 Buick Century. My fuel pressure regulator wasn’t working. It was allowing maximum pressure to be applied to the fuel injectors. I had trouble re-starting the warm engine because it was flooded. It’s a good thing I had it fixed becuase my mechanic said it was a potential fire hazzard.
