Hi REast!

Does it turn over but not start and run, or does it not even turn over?

If it is the latter, there are some underdash electrical components that could be the problem.

The most likely problem is a fuse/relay box that is connected to a black wire with white stripe from the ignition switch on one post and a white wire with red stripe on the other that goes to either a neutral safety switch if automatic tranny, or clutch interlock switch if it is a manual tranny.

This is actually an automatically resetting circuit breaker, and it thermally (heat) activated, although the heat source is supposed to be a short length of resistance wire, not interior heat. If this is weak, or if it is exposed to extremely high temperatures, it will kill power to the starter.

Locate this device, and when you have this problem, jumper the two wires together and see if it will now start. If so, then that is the problem and replacement is called for.

Try that and let us know how it goes, and let me know if you have other questions or need further assistance.

Thanks and good luck!

The fact that you can still play the radio is not necessarily an indication that the battery is strong enough to crank the engine over. What do you hear when you turn the key to the crank position? Do the interior lights dim when you try to crank the engine?
How old is this battery? In climates with temperature extremes, about six years is all you can expect. In moderate climates (neither extreme cold or hot) 8 to 10 years.
Have you examined the battery posts to see if there is any sign of corrosion? Battery post corrosion is not always visible but usually it is.

Car acts like it is running out of gas

never heard of this before and iam in spain where it gets hot,this is a catch 22 type problem with a domino effect.Change this and that and still no cure just a big bill for parts,try this first park car in shade and then start car and drive with AC on recirculate ,see if still does it with the interior of the vehicle kept cool ,if its ok then a component inside the car causing problems,if it persists then its a component under the bonnet causing the if its inside the car then it has a high probability of being the ECU ,if its under the bonnet then it could be a mass air flow sensor??or something on the inlet manifold

More than likely the heater valve is stuck open. You can usually purchase them from the local parts house. As far as the ride most of these cars ride this way. You can update the suspension with newer designs and shocks to allow a softer ride and can even get suspension that is adjustable allowing you to set the ride and performance yourself to your liking. Air suspension is probably also available to allow maximum soft ride.
