Sometimes when a starter is starting to go bad they will do this.  As they heat up they won't spin fast enough to get the car started.  Take it to an auto parts store and have them test it several times to recreate it being hot and they should be able to let you know if it is good or not.  Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

1996 dakota v6 starts dies but then wont start till time has gone by


Just a thought! There is a provision where when fuel pressure drops the ignition is shut off. This is to prevent pumping when the fuel line is compromised. Monitor fuel pressure to see if it drops during normal operation.

1991 Mazda 626 DX dies suddenly after running for 10 minutes.


Hello, It sounds like an engine ignition control module gone out or a coil. They get hot and quit working after a short period of time, cool off then work again till they get hot.
Is the ignition system pointless electronic or does it have points? Are you getting any fire at all now to the cylinders? Does the tach in the vehicle show any RPM's during cranking? Do you have voltage at the positive side of the ignition coil? Does the coil meet the ohm ratings for that years vehicle ignition? Does the vehicle have oil in it so the oil pressure sensor allows the engine to run, this may not be an option on your particular vehicle? You can check most of this out with a volt/ohm meter. Check your voltages before starting the vehicle, during running and after it quits to see where the loss is. Just don't get near the center tap of the coil or you will get a rude awakening and/or serious injury. Good luck, RAC

92 Honda Civic after short run fails to start


The two most common things are the pgmfi (fuel injection) relay, and the distributors. Replace the relay first, not too expensive and a new one is peace of mind, if that doesn't fix it, my money would be on the distributor. The relay is a rectangular (1"x1"x2") box bolted way up under the drivers side dashboard. It will say "Mitsuba" on it.

My dad is having trouble starting his 95 GMC Safari Conversion van after it has been running. After setting overnight the van starts right up. If he runs a short errand, turns it off, then tries to start...


My 1997 safari was doing the same. After being shut off for a short period of time it started as if it was flooded. If I put the accelerator to the floor it would fire up. As well, I had no engine codes to report. I replaced the fuel pressure regulator and everything is great. It was leaking fuel into the engine causing it to act flooded when starting. Once started, the computer system made adjustments for the leaking fuel so the engine ran fine. If you turn the van off and immediately try to start it, it should fire up. (don't give it time to leak extra fuel into the engine)

If i stop or let idle i feels like its being starved for fuel.. turn off the engine and start it again it runs fine till i stop again. Just replaced the fuel pump a week ago and has been running fine.


Mine did that to me about 4 months ago. I started by changing the fuel filter it ran great for a month. but by doing that it released all the pressure off of the fuel pump which then went out. If you run your vehicle below 1/4 tank it starves the fuel pump. The pump needs that fuel because; The fuel is the lubrication for the pump. Running your tank down consistently over a period of time will short the pump out faster.
