2001 oldsmobile silhouette will not crank after.........

My 2001 oldsmobile silhouette will not crank after car has been driven and engine is warm, once the engine has had time to cool down van will start and run just fine until you shut if off again. I have checked the starter and it tests fine, battery is near new with good cables, I changed the starter relay/solenoid and I'm still having the same problem. During winter months this problem never happens.

Does the temp gauge or light come on? is the car over heating? .... oh and a starter can test fine when its cold, but the heat soak from the engine and exhaust affect it's performance drastically. it sounds like you need a new starter.

Oil pump replacement, location of it, nomenclature


Remove oil pan and pump is bolted to back main bearing cap. But this is most likely not the problem. This engine is known for cam bearings spinning out of the block and cam shaft breaking inbetween #3 and 4 cam journals, oil pump is driven off the end of camshaft, engine runs very rough and makes all kinds of noise when this happens, cure is a new engine. to check for broken cam shaft removed front valve cover, have some one start or crank the engine, the 2 rocker arms on the drivers side will not move at all, most likely there will be silver metal dust laying in the low spots of the head where oil puddles up.
