Whenever i drive my 1990 gti 8 valve for a long time (about an hour) it won't restart for at least an hour. When i turn the ignition, the warning lights come on but the starter doen't even crank. After i wait an hour, it starts perfectly. Anyone know the problem?

thanks.

my bros did he same thing. it was a loose connection off the starter. the heat from the engine caused the connection to loosen. then when the engine was cold, the metal would contract a bit to get a good connection, and it would start just fine.
hope that will work for you.
