Customer Question

93 jimmy, 4.3, 4x4, 153K: New issue. Intermittent failure to start. Start-off-restart-off all day long, no problem. Drive for 10 minutes, turn it off for 20 minutes, no response to ignition. Good instrumentation. No solenoid click (newer battery). Lively spark at the distributor. Leave it over-night, it'll start back up. Most times. Before I start throwing parts at it, any obvious suggestions?

Are you saying that it does not crank over when this happens?

You could just have a bad starter motor.

Have you checked for power down at the starter when this happens?
