Cars Q&A

Hi All, I have my second car Wagon-R. I am facing pretty odd problem. It runs pretty good. Good Avg (16) and preform is also good. but I am facing problem that is not understandable. When I start it first time any day, it starts great in half turn of ignition key and if I drive for like 50 kms and then turn off the engine and try to start the car it doesn't get started. and after like 15-20 mins if I try again it starts. seems like something wrong when engine is hot. I went to maruti service center they said nothing wrong with the engine it's the battery problem. now I got my car battery replaced but still facing the same problem. I got a feeling like, something went wrong with wiring when it's hot. is it possible?

  • It starts in the morning, means your battery and charging are OK. I suspect it is your fuel pump, which gets excess fuel. I think that you gives much Accelerator before stopping the car.Your Car wont have any problem.Regards

  • get the self and altenator checked, thorougly from lucas service station

  • Get your alternator checked. However, if your battery is not "draining" and you can start it first crank in morning it could mean that the relay is gone. Check the manual, you will find where the battery relay/alternator relay is located. Replace. Also check for tightness of all belts.

  • If it starts first thing in the morning, it means your battery and charging are OK. Unfortunately you do not say which year the WagonR is, does it have carb. or electronic fuel system. I suspect it is your fuel pump, any half decent mechanic should be able to guide you. If it has a carb. then I suspect it will be because of overflow, that to is easy to find out,I do not know of any dealer service that guides people correctly. All of them can change parts, but fault finding no chance. Regards

  • iit is the fuel pump motor which heats up after driving for a while .,it can never be a self problem bcoz u do not use it while the car is being driven .,so no chance of its heating up..

  • I guess it should be either the fuel pump which stops working when it becomes hot or it could be a problem wuth the radiator which does an auto cut-off to the MCB when its over heated.

    The problem could be due to overheating.Getting the coolant drained and filling with fresh coolant will help.Else thermostat needs to checked/replaced.
