The car cranks great when cold. But when you drive it for a while, and get it to oper. temp and let it cool down for 30 min to an hour and try to crank it again it takes 3 or 4 trys to start it. If you turn the ignition on and then off two or three times and then crank it, it fires right up. Please help!!!

When you turn the key to start position that 2 or 3 times does starter click? or does it do nothing? If it clicks starter selanoid on starter is bad, If it don't click at all its ignition switch thats bad.

Try changing or switching out the distributor. Most likely getting hot and shuts down. Does it crank but no start whenever it stops? May only start when it cools down again.

Drive for about 15 mins and car get to a warm temp and then suddenly turns off with no hesitation missing or warning then will not start again for 30 mins when it has cooled down, temp doesnt get hot.


To start with check the coolant level in radiator...Your vehicle is equipped with a head temp sensor that is designed to shut motor down before it reaches temp. that will result in engine damage..If level is ok then i would look at the water pump at being your next culprit.In either case i would definetly check your temp. sending unit to make sure its operational due to the fact you state that vehicle doesnt get hot...Another thing you can check is to make sure that your cooling fan turns when car gets hot...If fan doesnt come (after you have made sure coolant temp sensor is operational) check fan relay located in power distribution box in engine compartment...

Vehicle won't restart after driving for a while


You said it's runs fine, but it just won't start after driving a while. If thermostat or temp sensor was bad you'd be overheating. It sounds like a vapor lock. Good luck

Engine running to cool


Replace the thermostat. If thermo is stuck open, coolant only heats up when there is no flow over radiator(idle) and then cools down when driving. Also, check coolant level, same response as stuck thermo.
