Q: Engine just shut off at idle, then starter acting like it was not engaged? on 1996 Nissan 200SX

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Son said it ran great all day, 101 degrees out, then as he went to put it in park, it shut off, then wouldn't turn over, starter noises like a small grinding shriek, then 10 minutes later started right up and he drove it home, just don't want him getting stranded, does this sound serious or just a issue with a starter? Thanks Karl Also, we just bought this car with 150,000 miles on it and it looks great inside and out, so this is kinda throwing me a bit. Thanks for any help you guys can throw my way. CHeers!

sounds like starter is going bad, take it out, bring it to your local parts store for testing..
