Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car is subaru outback 2.5 i, 2008 and I have the following problem. After short drives when the temperature is low the car refuses to start. I may crank it dead but it won't start. Then I live it for 15-30 minutes and it starts without problem. I'have replaced coolant temp sensor and sparks but it didn't help. Where should I look for. Besided no mistakes in computer found. Thanx for your help.

Besides, crank sensor has been replaced as well.

I have a 2006 Forester XT Turbo with the same problem. Starts fine cold all the time. After driving and stopping for a short time, the car will not start, but after 15-30 mins will start. It also hesitates a bit after it starts when warm but usually does not stall. Had fuel pump replaced and fuel relay replaced - no go. Also, no code showing up.

The issue, in your case, may be connected with crankshaft sensor.

Did that solve your problem?
