Re: 156 Engine Management Failure oddity?
Yep, just had this exact problem on my 1.8 TS, would not start until the engine had cooled down (1hr 20mins avg) I learned to fill up at my nearest petrol station (300 yards away, before the car had warmed up, so i could restart it.
The garage said the diagnostic check showed lots of codes, but i told em to do the crankshaft sensor only. They did, and it is now fixed. Cost 31 quid + 1 hrs labour + vat, total £89. (apparantly it is a pig to get to too, just above the exhaust flexy bit)
