Starter engages while enine is running

I can start my 2000 astro van when it is cold in park and everything is okay, when it warms up it engages the starter all by its self. It only did it in park or neautral at first but then one day i was driving down the road in drive and the starter started engaging. I put a new starter in but that did not help

REPLACE THE STARTER RELAY and check the wirirrig for shorted wires. If there is a short in the wiring or in the relay, the starter's solenoid will get power when it's not supposed to and than be activated.

It sounds like a problem in the ignition switch. Maybe a piece of metal inside that rattles around and get's between the contact. Otherwise, 12 volts has to get to the ignition solenoid on the starter bendix somehow, and you would have seen that when you replaced the starter.

Does this vehicle have a burglar alarm, and is it functioning correctly?

1996 Chevy Astro V6 67K wont start when cold, needs engine starter fluid, ok when warmed up. Runs smooth. What is wrong?


I would say that the choke sensor (or whatever it is called) went bad & isn't telling the computer that it's cold & requires more fuel. Instead of starter fluid, did you try to push the foot feed 1 or 2 times?

Fast idle astro van


Check the base plate gasket under the throttle body, some time the gasket start to leak, and will cause a high idle, if possible with engine running get some water and pore it at the base of the throttle bode, you will hear a suction sound, that's the gasket, replace it.
