A common reason is a dirty throttle valve and Idle Speed Control Air bypass valve on the engine intake manifold. Buy a can of throttle body cleaner from a parts store and clean the two parts.

My 1995 golf will not start when the motor is hot,why?

Often when this happens something is failing electronically and can be hard to locate which part. If you know all of the parts that are in the sytems and there location(like the ignition amplifier, the camshaft position, ecm, etc it will be easier to locate the failing part. Often the ignition amplifier, camshaft position sensor and not so often ecm will cause no start when hot. There are many things that can do it other than those few named. When the vehicle will not start it may be often missing spark because of the ignition amplifier. Say it fails and you find out that it has no spark once it is hot. Find that component that you believe or think is suspect and spray it with a can or "Kool mist" or "component cooler" which will cool the electronics down. If you have the correct failing component the vehicle will restart once cooled and at that point you simply replace that component and its done. The spray coolant may come in different names but it all does the same...cooling components or circuits. Radio shacks cooling spray is called "component cooler". When you are spraying the electronics to cool it down, spray it for as long as it takes to cool it and that depends on where it is located; normally just a few second burst of spray will cool most components. This cooling will only help if you have located that failing component. If the vehicle will set for a while and then restart when it's cooled down but will not restart when you use the cooling spray on it, you more than likely just have the wrong component. If you know where the suspected components are, you can most likely find them.

96 F 150 5.0l stalls out. possibley heat related. wont restart right away. 2x have gotten restarted after 10 min. both times on highway. seems like ign. cant troubleshoot since it restarts. driving me...

The coil wire slide on type ( not Bolt on ) have a tendansy to expand if they get to hot, thus causing an open in your ignition system and shutting down your engine. much the same as driving down the highway and sudenly turning off your key.After a period of cool down you turn the key and the motor firers up right away because the coil cap has had a chance to cool down as well and cuntract to its original shape ounce again and is ounce again making proper contact,untill it gets to hot again and then the same thing will happen.Solution replace the coil half cap and wires to it.

92 ford focus runs fine but won't start after

If car is parked for 45min running will it restart?
Most likely you have a fuel pump getting hot & shutting down cools off & then will restart. The fuel pump relay could also do this.
