Customer Question

We have an Audi A 3 wagon and many times car will not start after using for 1/2 hour. For example, drive to grocery store and shop- come out 15 minuetes later and car will not start. Must wait about 1/2 hour and car will start- we brought to Audi and they hooked up to computer but couldn't find problem
This problem happens at least once a week

Has it ever died while driving? I'm leaning toward suspicion of the crank speed sensor, they often will not set a fault even if you are trying to start the car and it is out of spec.
