John: have you looked at the fuel pump relay- this sounds similar to a problem
that some VW owners have experienced. It might also me a malfunctioning cold-
I occasionally experience trouble getting the car to turn over when hot, but I
think this is due to too much fuel - I always can smell gas in this situation. -
Have you looked to see whether you have a malfunctioning cold-start valve which
is injecting too much gas and flooding the engine?
Good Luck , and keep us posted...
