    Warm/hot start issue

    Afternoon all,

    I've recently purchased an Audi A3 2.0 tdi, MY2004. Whilst I love the car and have been very impressed with it, it has a problem. I have spent literally hours researching this and wondered if anyone could provide more detailed info

    When my car is cold fist thing in the morning it starts almost instant with no hesitation. As soon as the water temperature goes above 70ish, if the engine is turned off, upon restarting it will take a good 3-4 seconds of cranking for the engine to restart.

    Now I've read all kinds of stories, does anyone know the most likely cause of this issue? Any helpful posts will be extremely appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    For when your starter doesn't reach the correct RPM and no fuel is available
    Creating fuel at lower Cranking RPM will temporally solve the problem
    Failing starter or failing battery causes it.

    I asked this the other day elsewhere when i read about the problem

    Can it be "remapped" out? Or is there a software update available for it ? If so who can do this?
