Question about Cars & Trucks
Starter solenoid rarely engages (starter motor always spins) on cold start, works much better after car has been driven during the day. Occasionally starter gets stuck ON, even after key is released. This has happened even when I wasn't touching the key so I had to install a kill switch inline. Sometimes no spark even when engine cranks fine (fuel is fine but car won't start until trying it later). Is this a problem with the IGNITION SWITCH (not the lock cylinder but the electrical switch)?
ANY FAULT CODES? HAVE YOU CHECKED THE STARTE DEPTH FOR PROPER CLEARANCE? HAVE YOU RITIATED THE FLYWHEEL TO LOOK FOR MISSING TEETH? I HAD AN 82 T/A AND THAT WAS WHAT CAUSED MY STARTER PROBLEMS. AS FAR AS NO SPARK DO YOU HAVE ANY FAULT CODES INTHE ELECTRONICS? TO TEST WITHOUT A SCNNER GO TO THIS LINK

check the iginition switch properly.
Check all of the battery terminals and cables and check the wires on the starter/selonoid, start from the battery and follow the cable out and check all conections , clean and tighten them and if it still does it the starter/selonoid is bad and needs replacement...

It depends on how old the battery is.
4 years or more could be a bad cell.
3 years could be a bad connection on dirty terminals.
1 year could be a weak solenoid or starter if it does it every now and then.
Best bet is to do a load test on the battery. Then check the connections then solenoid/starter in that order. Hope this gets you the info you needed and thanks for using FixYa.

clean the throttle plate & the idle air control valve,, be careful not to damage the mass air flow. choke and carb cleaner works fine.
