View Full Version : Bora cuts out after 20 mins and then won't start until cold

Hi all

My 99 V5 bora will start fine from cold and run for about 20 mins then cut out. when turning the key, it appears to turn over fine but nothing starts.

if left long enough it will start back up but if it's still warm will only run for about 2 minutes, the longer it is left, i.e. the colder it is, the longer it will run.

The RAC bloke came out and tested it whilst it was dead and the leads weren't getting spark, which is odd because when it's cold they obviously do.

so whats stopping it getting spark when it's warm? RAC bloke says maybe coil pack, but from what I've read its not a known problem on the V5 or is it?

Any help is really appreciated....i'm very stumpped at the moment. :confused:
