Question about 1996 Saturn SL
Starts fine when cold, if vehicle is hot it won't start, it won't even crank over. If you wait half hour or so, it'll start just fine. There is a click which sounds like the solenoid, and the battery is find. The car is standard and will roll start if the problem occurs. Please help.
Your starter is bad. Replacing it will fix your problem. The solenoit is kicking in (click) but thermal expansion (heat) is exxaggerating an internal problem. When its cold, the internal tolerances are larger.
