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

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

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?

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.
