Crankup and drive get some place and shut it off them sometimes wont restart till it cools. checked relays battery alternater all is good what is wrong ?

If your starter won't turn over after driving and shutting the car off, sometimes, it sounds like your starter is getting stuck/overheating. Replace your starter and this problem should go away.

Intermittent starter problem. fist time I turn the key everything works including all the dash lights, but not the starter. I may have to turn the ignition switch on and off several times before it will...

Even though you have dash lights, I would check the connections at the battery and ensure that they are shiny and clean looking. If not, then vigorously wire brush each connection at the connection point (after removing the negative cable first, then the positive cable).

Perhaps, try to have the battery checked at a battery reseller like Sears, Walmart, Advance Auto Parts, Autozone, or Pep Boys, or a reseller like that.

Also you might as well have the starter checked at one of these places while you're at it.

99 devile, have to manualy move the crank to get starter to inguage sometimes. it is the 4.6 northstar.what would cause this...

broken tooth or wore out teeth on the flywheel. The flywheel is mounted to the engine when the starter is engaged its gears (teeth) engage the flywheels teeth and turn your engine. The reason you can turn the motor and try again and it grabs is because you have turned it enough to grab some of the good teeth you have left. You must replace the flywheel. Hope this helps

Metall box not supplying power to sol

On the solinoide there should have 2 thick connection lugs. 1 from battery & 1 into starter field coils. Test to see if power is going through to the field coil when turning the key to start position. If not fit a new solinoide. Make sure the solinoide is activating when turning the key first
