1994 Chevy Silvrado Starter Problem

I have a 1994 Chevy Silverado and after driving it for around 1\2 hour and ishut it off it will not start. Turn the Key and not even a click. Once it sits for 1-2 hours it starts with no problems. I have replaced the starter twice and I do have the heat shield on. I was wondering if there is something I can put on the heatshield to help block the heat since the starter sits right next to the exhaust manifold.

    Starter doesn't want to turn over after a ten-mile trip. Let it cool for a while and it starts. After sitting for two weeks, it started fine, went to store, won't turn over.

It’s your solenoid that is getting hot and the engagement washer inside is what is sticking. There is some heat shield material you can get from the auto parts store to shield you solenoid.

How to replace a heater core in a 1994 chevy 1500

As with all vehicles it seems the first part that they build around is the heater core. It is under the dash above the floor housed in a black plastic sealed box. Sealed with goop. Locate that box and start removing everything around it that is peventing taking the cover off. Of course disconnect the heater hoses under the hood a thefirewall.

Warning it is never as easy as it sounds.

Sounds like the auto shut down relay. Located somewhere in the front grille/bumper area. Relay triggers on impact to shut down all power in order to prevent fires etc. Great idea but can cause exactly the frustration you are having if you don't know it's there!!
