Question about Cars & Trucks
After car cools starter works fine. does solenoid plunger expand not allowing it to move? i have wraped starter in insulation it helped 99% but once in a while it acts up. grind some material off plunger?????
If wrapping starter in insulation proved effective then what you need is a panel between the starter and exhaust manifold. This is a piece of tin shaped part way around the starter and allows air flow between the manifold and starter. Like the tin on top of the exhaust under the car. It can be mounted off the manifold bolts or of the starter bolts. If you check with the auto electricians and speed shops there may be an item available off the shelf.

I had the exact same problem on my 1998 Chevrolet 1500 c/k pickup. I also tried a new starter motor and solenoid assembly, but to no avail.
After weeks of searching for the problem, I found that corrosion had built up between the car battery terminals and the power cables extended from the car battery to the starter motor. I'm not sure if this is your problem, but it's worth a try. Also, check all other electrical connections, because these types of intermittent problems are often electrical.

SOURCE: Right front wheel gets hot.
It sounds like a classic "hot brake", your caliper is probably stuck depressed on the rotor. You will probably need to replace the caliper and both front rotors as the one that is getting hot is probably warped. They are replaced in pairs. Get the rotors/caliper and do it yourself. It really is a simple task with minimal tools/mechanical expertise. Get a Hanyes repair manual and it will be a breeze and save you $1K.
