Why dose my car suddenly stall/die in hot temprature weather?

Asked by Apr 02, 2014 at 08:51 PM about the 2005 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Recently the weather warmed up where I live and my car has been dieing on me when I
drive out during the day when it's hot out. It does not do it in the morning or evenings. CEL
is not on. It dies and it won't start for about 5 minutes after it starts the engine runs fine.
Do you have any idea what it could be? I replaced the battery and spark plugs 2 weeks
ago. Do you think that it could be the coils?

You need to change crankshaft position sensor ,It is located to the right of the oil filter and it has one bolt holding it to the engine block.You have to buy OEM sensor dont buy cheap one that is made in China it will make you more problems,When engine dies just poor some water on top of the sensor and it would start
