    starting issue when hot

    hi been having a few problems. when the car is cold e.t.c the car turns over and starts fine. when the engine is hot however sometimes you turn the key and its really slow and turning over then all of a sudden it will turn over fine and fire into life. the battery si fine all been tested. im guessing its the starter motor on the way out??

    Apparently the starter motor suffers from heat soak from the engine/gearbox as written by another member on this site. This could well be causing the problem. May last a while before it gets any worse.
