Starting car problems

hi there- i’ve been having lately a problem that my car is not starting after its warmed up, i believe this because it will start first try in the morning , but after running it for a short time and stopping and

letting it sit for 30 minutes or so then thats when i have problems starting it. last time it did this 3 days ago i had to wait 4 hrs before it started again. havent taken it to mechanic yet(of course) but i would appreciate any feedback i can get from u guys…!!!txxx, love ur show…!!!

The problem may be a relay, but most likely the starter. This problem has been described before as ‘heat soak’, and has created similar problems on all makes and models from time to time. Or course, I’d test all the circuits involved with the starter before condemning it to a replacement.
