    My A3 1.8t 51 plate....was running great all day went into a carpark for 30 mins came out and car struggled to start...got it going after a while but engine managment light is on? Car seems to be running normally after I get it to fire up. Got it home and went out after about an hour same problem car won't fire up?

    Really, if the EML is on you need to get it fault scanned.

    Off the bat, I would suspect the Coolant Temp Sender unit personally, but that's guesswork.
