My car starts without any problems the first time I try to crank it. It will then run fine after that with no problems. If I turn it off and try to crank it again, it starts sounding like it wants to turn over, but it doesn't start. Then, after trying it for a while, sometimes it starts back up.
Hello. Most of the time when this engine will not restart once it is hot, it is due to a failure in the distributor. Typically when these start to fail they will not produce spark once the engine is turned off when hot. A mechanic would typically check for spark when the problem is occurring. If there is not spark then the distributor needs to be replaced.
