01 ford laser has starting issues, turn key all i get is reds, wait a couple of seconds try again and it starts fine, This can go on for a while sometimes. Dont think its starter motor dont get noise

If the commutator (part that contacts the brushes) has a short, it will only energize half of the starter motor then stop. (single "click") just enough to spin the motor past the short, or when it gets worse, repeatedly turning the key, will get you repeated single clicks until past the short, then starts fine

Check with your local parts store, they may check your starter for free, you are looking for excessive amp draw

Afraid not. Although the light goes out it still may not be charging very little charge will put the light out. the other reason I feel it's the alternator is instead of rpm increasing it should decrease as a properly charging alternator should pull the engine which should decrease the rpm

I am currently having problems starting my car. Hi have a 2002 Kia Carens. The problem is intermittant. It isn't limited to a cold engine either. All I seem to get is the Starter motor turning over but the...

Any time people tell me intermittant no starts, and shutdowns. The first thing I go for is the fuel filter. they clog up, you still get fuel pressure, but not flow. If you haven't replaced this in a while, do so. Fuel filters are the most neglected part of the system and one of the most important.

Car won't start in the morning, motor turns over repeatedly. after waiting for a couple hours it will start and continue to start fine all day. check engine light is not on.

Why would you even go thru all that?

It either starts and performs correctly, or you
stop using it,have it diagnosed and repaired

Have the fuel pump checked out

1999 landcruiser has intermittent starting problems. Sometimes it starts fine. Other times turns over once then nothing. Other times clicks but no turn-over. Other times no click, no start. Battery is good...

I had a similar problem with my landcruiser sometimes it would start no probs at all and other times it would start to crank and then stop and you had to try a couple of times to start it. It ended up being the starter motor contacts failing.
Just another thing to look at

Vehicle will not start at times

Yes that is possible, excessive engine movement from bad/broken mounts put added pulling load on the wiring harness to the engine, it can pull connectors loose and break wiring inside of its insulator, bend a piece of wire over and over and it breaks, the same applies here.
