Sounds like you got a shorted starter the windings in the starter short when they get hot when this happens when the starter is hot it can't hardly turn the engine over because there is not enough magnetism ti turn the starter and thus the car motor over. cools off it is fine gets hot and shorts out replace starter

Sounds like you're in tank fuel pump is starting to go bad..happened to my astro van a few years ago..kept doing this until one day it just didn't work. Have someone do a fuel pressure test before and after turning the engine over...Also try this..before trying to start your engine turn your switch to ON for about ten seconds and listen very carefully for the pump running to prime the fuel system and injectors it should run for about five seconds...then try starting the engine...get into the habit of waiting those 10 seconds to insure proper priming of the system..good luck

My 03 santa fe sometimes will not start as if the diesel is not getting to the engine any thoughts

most starting problems with diesels can be sourced to
low fuel pressures( pressure draining off over time), air in the system, glo-plugs not working and slow cranking speeds
run the fault codes first to check for possible electronic and sensor faults
take it to an accredited diesel shop and have the fuel system and fuel pressure checked

The engine turns but won't start, after no problems the day before

You should get a code reader to see if there are any OBD codes that are set. This problem is usually caused by the crank sensor

Cranks wont start drains battery

It could be that your fuel filter is clogged or your fuel pump went out. Can you tell me if it happened suddenly, or did it gradually get to this point over time?

Engine cranks very slow on starting and will not start

refill the battery with electrolyt and charge it fully, then try to start the vehicle
If it cranks/turns over no faster have the starter motor checked.

Ensure that the timing belt is intact before you do anything, and that it is in the correct position.
Ensure that the oil is clear of water and is clean and is topped up to the top mark on the dipstick

Assuming you have checked the above and the belt and oil/coolant is all as they should be, and you have a fully charged battery and the starter is ok .......attempt to start the vehicle. Turn it over/ crank it over a few times if it does not start immediately.
Should it not start perform a compression check to find out the
engine's state of health.

Then come back with the results and we can go feom there.
Add the detail of your work and the make and model of the vehicle, along with the engine option, and repost the query

Why does my car just turn over but wont start

A suggestion would be to check your fuel filter to make sure it is not stopped up. Your fuse to the fuel pump may also need to be checked. Chevys are notorius for bad fuel pumps.

Wont turn on

does the lights come on but the motor does not turn, if it is this it can be the starter for the motor inside next to the motor is a started solenoid this starts the motor to run. when they start to fail you get a buzzing sound or a humming, eventually it just fails. also the motors are prone to fail after time, and they don't do replacements for this part

Reset engine indicator light

1. With the Car Off, Press and hold down the Odometer Trip Reset Button. 2. While still pressing the Trip Reset Button, Turn the Ignition Key half way on where all your oil, check engine lights etc.. turn on. Don't turn it as far as you would to normally start the car. Wait a few seconds and the Check engine light will turn off. 3. Turn the key back to the Off position and you're done.
