Sometimes it starts good and sometimes won't start


If starter doesn't spin everytime. Clean battery terminals and a connection. Check connection at starter. Try putting into neutral to start. If starter still doesn't turn car over everytime. Probably starter solenoid. If starter spins every time and doesn't start check temperature sensor. My car once started only when sitting for a couple of hours. Because sensor was saying it was really cold and it would flood it. Had to push gas peddle to floor and hold it there until started. If that is the case change temperature sensor. If car is after mid 90s take and get it scanned.

After driving for a while and shutting my jeep off it will not restart without sitting for a few hours


It sounds like a bad starter solenoid/starter, because a starter sits so close to a engine and exhaust that over the years the heat starts breaking down the components and when you drive your Jeep the starter solenoid gets "heat soaked" so when you've been driving your Jeep around for awhile and then turn it off the solenoid is "heat soaked", it needs to cool off before it will engage the starter again. Sometimes it can take up to a few hours to work again. Some people hit the starter w(the engine off) with a hammer to try to free it up.

The solution is to replace the starter with a new one and your Jeep will start up every time. Most starters come with a new solenoid already attached so it's best to replace them both.

95 pontiac grand am 2.3 wont start when warm ive replaced the coils the coil housing and the ignition module it still wont start until it sits for a few hours sometime it needs to sit over night please...


It's either a cracked crank position sensor, or the starter. Start by removing the crank position sensor and checking it. It is located somewhere on your engine block.

Car not starting and have new battery


You are quite welcome. That is what FixYa is all about. Helping poeple such as youself. Now that you have told me that tapping on the starter makes a difference, It is my opinion that you do indeed have a starter issue. You have 2 options: First, you could take the starter off, and replace the solenoid and replace the worn internal contacts. This is the lesser cost option. The contact wear issue is a very common failure; I change contacts in starters 2-3 times a week. The second option is to replace the starter. If you want to go the contacts route, post back to me for detailed information.
