Hi there ... how old is the battery? it could be that the battery is not holding a charge anymore therefore when you park the car and get back in in the morning , the battery is dead. If the caps on the top of the battery are removable, take them off and check the fluid level in the battery. If the battery is new, You might have a current draw from an electrical device in the car (ie.... a light that is constantly on ) in that cased you may want to take it to a shop and have them put it on a computer and have them check for the current draw cause chasing something like that can take forever. My suspision though is the battery. Hope this helps you out.

Starter solenoid or just a starter bad, sometimes this comes out of nowhere but usually you can hear it start cranking slow shortly before failure.

Just had plugs,wires and bottom gasket leak fixed. Car cranked next day,several hrs. later,wouldn't start.mechanic came and jumped it off,said alternator was getting too hot. Next day cranked, drove to...


That would make sense, because when he jumped your car if he left it hooked up for awhile. Then he charged your battery up, so it started the next day. Then you drove to his shop and back it ran the battery down. It's easy enough to test and change alternators you could take it to autozone or O'Reillys if there is one close they can test your alternator. If you have more questions about this or if you would like to try and change it yourself just reply to this post and I will walk you through it.

First check for spark and good fuel pressure if these are good then the ignition switch is the culprit.

No spark very intermittently


Ignition module. They tend to die an intermittent death.
