Try plugs and wires. If still nothing start looking at fuel filter for blockage or fuel pump.

Besides the ignition switch what else could be bad when the starter engages but won't start. Radio, dash and windows do not operate at the same time.

Must be in the key switch . Logically any way
hi Gary how are you. Frustrated I bet , sorry for your woes man electrical problems are tough and sometimes for myself Even though I have a masters in electrical.
Lets see Gary I'm only speculating but when you roll the switch to the on position only this should close the contacts in the switch and provide power to all accessories , widows , lights on dash and other switched components . Also this will close the start circuit sending 12 v + to the coil or ignition system and is now waiting for the crank circuit when you roll the switch forward to turn over starter. So try this , if you roll the switch back to the accessories position you are primarily doing the same thing as rolling it forward in first position EXCEPT minus the start circuit. Roll it back and see if you have all power to other components , ie windows,
wipers , lights . If so then your switch is faulted . It's worn or the contacts are burned out and is reason for not starting motor because no continuous 12 v to ignition system . REPLACE SWITCH . ...,.. I HOPE THIS HELPS . let us know in the comment box . We all can learn from results one enters .......
Best to Ya man ..........,A. G.

Car rolling over won't start have to hold the key on to start

ignition switches for GM products are on a recall for a 12 year period
your car falls inside that time frame so have it replaced under the warranty recall
the problem is a failure of the switch in that when you release the key to the run position the circuit to supply power to the ignition circuit is broken

The key turns and eventually rolls over. It takes

Your question is not complete, The start key does it turn around 360 degrees? if so the ignition switch needs to be replaced, also if it's hard to start when hot, that depends or alot of variables, fuel type, clean air filter, If you say it starts when it feels like doing so, the vehicle doesn't know.Sounds like a bad connection in the ignition switch, also check and clean your ground cable on the battery . The problems are easy to fix and should not cost more that 75.00 the ignition switch is the costly part
