I know this problem. First, if you have not replaced the starter and solonoid within the last 150,000 miles then now is the time. That will solve your problem. But if your like me and your a cheapskate then this is what you do. Go to autoparts store and get a set of brushes for your starter motor, $5.00. Pull the starter and disassembly the motor, replace the brushes, etc. Disassemble the solonoid and inspect the points of contact where electrical continuity is essential. Remember 12 volt starter power is always hot at the starter. When you turn the key your just powering the solonoid coil which pulls the starter gear to the flywheel. This process also completes the circuit to the starter motor. When your car is hot, the expansion due to change in temperature will cause loss in continuity within the solonoid if parts are significant worn. Hope this helps

1997 GMC Yukon runs great but starts hard

That's often a sign of a failing check valve in the fuel pump. Try this. When you turn the key to RUN, the fuel pump activates for 2-seconds to boost any lost pressure. Try turning the key to RUN, then OFF and repeat three times. If the engine starts right up, you probably need a new fuel pump. The real test is called a leakdown test where the shop throws a pressure gauge on it and leaves it overnight. If it loses more than 5-10-psi, the check valve is shot. Can't be replaced separately .
