I have an '04 Chevy Malibu Maxx - 3.5L V6
About 1-2x per month, the engine will have issues starting. All other times, the engine starts fine, no issues. Lately though, when we do have the starting issue, it takes more tries to get the car started...
Symptoms: When trying to start, we hear the click of the solenoid and the starter turns and then it just keeps cycling/spinning/clicking, etc. After 15-30 sec. of this, it will usually finally start. Or sometimes, we will have to stop, wait a few minutes, then try again for another 30 sec. attempt.
As I mentioned, about 90% of the time the car starts fine.
The latest time though, I couldn't start it, had it towed to the dealership and it started right up....of course.
I'm suspecting it is something electrical since we have no fuel starvation issues while idling or driving...
Had the battery tested and it is strong and spark plugs/wires were recently changed.
Any ideas? Ignition Switch?
