Try cleaning battery cables and focus on the bottom ends. They're exposed to grease & grime and when hot they expand. I'd start there.

My heater blows hot for a couple minutes then turns cold. After turning it off for a few minutes and back on, it blows hot then goes cold again.


LET YOUR CAR WARM UP FIRST!! or you risk the chance of over heating and casuing engine damage. start your car let it warm up for 5 to ten minutes and then try the heat. also when you start you should NEVER have heat on right away. the heat that you feel comes from the engine. and if the engine is cold and you are trying to heat it up it will put stress on the engine and over heat. ALL cars have to wait for their heat. that's why you see peoples car running in the morning with no one in it. so when they do get in it they have heat. heat will not work until the engine is warm.

I have a 1992 ford f250. Starts great when cold. When the engine is warm and I've parked it for a few minutes or a few hrs it experiences a very hard start. New battery, new alternator, new battery...


IF you are saying that the starter motor is sluggish to turn over as if the batter is flat or low (6cylinder) then the problem is overheating of the starter. There is a shield that is available from ford to keep air flow around the starter. I found the answer to be a high performance starter (used for worked motors) as it is not affected by the heat.

If it is the starter that will not turn the engine over,then the alternator is most likely not charging the battery,therefore letting it sit a while,lets the battery build back up.

Hard to start after shutting off


The starter operates great when cold. When the engine gets to its normal operrating tempreture the starter gets hot. An old starter will have an expanded armature from this causing the starter to drag or just freeze up hot . When its cool it will start again. This will eventuly get hot and the armature will go bad forever on you so get it changed soon

Ignition problem


It is more than likely the starter. The brushes are becoming worn and when you try starting it there is an arch between the brushes and the armature when after a few time it will make contact on then start.

Saturn SC2 Hot Start Problem


It sounds as if the crank position sensor is bad.When the engine heats up,it cases the sensor not to work.After the sensor cools it will work again.
