Answer 1
by not start do your mean it won't crank or it cranks and will not start. if it won't crank poss starter is getting hot and binding up -
Comment 1
No i mean it doesnt crank at all But if i wait 5 minutes it will start i can drive for a long time but when i park the car and try to restart it it wont start Then i can wait a couple of minutes and it will start -
Comment 2
BAD CONNECTION AT BATTERY CABLES OR STARTER OR STARTER IS BINDING UP AFTER IT GETS HOT. GETS A DIAG AND EST SOUNDS LIKE STARTER TO ME AND SHOULD BE A QUICK FIX AND INEXPENSIVE FOR THE MOST PART -
Answer 2
WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY TO START THE ENGINE DO YOU HEAR THE ENGINS SPINNING OVER AND WON'T FIRE UP OR YOU HEAR NO SOUND AT ALL? -
Comment 1
no sound at all But if i wait a few minutes and turn the key over it will start -
Comment 2
IF YOU DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO A LIFT AND PROPER TOOLS TAKE IT TO A REPAIR SHOP. SOUNDS LIKE THE STARTER MOTOR NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. -
