    Yes, it has died at times when I stop at a stop sign or a light. Does this still sound like a fuel filter problem? I am going to replace the plugs and wires anyway because it's time. Thank you.

Sometimes a fuel filter will get clogged and unclog as the fuel pressure drops enough for the gunk to settle back down. Does the car die when you are driving it? The other option is a component or wire will get hot and fail only to work when the engine/component cools.

    Could still be the filter, however I've had IAC (idle air control) valves go bad. These same things can occur when a fuel pump goes bad, but the car normally won't restart immediately, say, at a stop sign.

    Good idea I think to investigate the cap and rotor on the distributor like you said.

    good luck!

My 1997 suzuki jx 1.6 ltr starts when cold but at opperating temp it needs about 30 min to cool before it will start again.

I don't know anything about these models, but my first guess would be to check the ECT(engine coolant temp) sensor and wiring. Sounds like the ECM thinks the engine is cold all the time. High resistance in the temp sensor circuit will cause a colder then normal reading at the ECM.

Have your starter tested. If you take it off, any parts store will test it for free.

Good battery? And fully charged? Battery and starter connections clean and tight?

I have a 95 honda civic ex,wont start.ran fine yesterday,wont start this morning.battery is fully charged,new cap and rotor.would do u think might b my problem

if it wont turn over 1st check the ground s on the car and the battery 1st. your battery can be fully charged and the car will not start even over night this can happen. then look at the starter. Note: if you have over 109K on the car and the timing belt has never been replaced you will need to have this checked as well.

My suzuki grand vitara is not starting after a roll over

No roll over switch on this model, pull the spark plugs and clean them, turn it over with the plugs out with rags over the motor to catch any oil. then put the plugs in and try it again, it won't take much oil on the plugs to stop it starting.
