    Horrible idle, and hot start problems

    My car has been freaking out lately.

    I scanned it for codes, which I came out with the post cat O2 sensor, and also a code for the coolant temperature sensor.

    So my question is:

    Can the coolant temp sensor cause my car to barely start when it's hot, and also idle like pure crap?

    Thanks ahead guys!

    It should do the trick. We see those things cause exactly what you are experiencing. The rear 02 wont cause that symptom.

    Well, it was $8.56 with an O-Ring. I also needed a whole bunch of stuff that they had. Not gonna pay stealership price for a MKV R pan and pump.

    I'd always check any local shop that has accounts with the big parts distributors as well

    If you've got the parts, I'll come up. I'll be driving to Tacoma to pick up a brand new crate 24v pretty soon.
