I have a 1995 Pontiac transport van with the V-6 3.8 liter engine and
Automatic transmission. I've started having it at random times deside
it's not going to start. You turn the ignition key and it won't even
turn over, you get the light on the dash, the battery is in good
condition, headlights work well so it has good connection.
I'm wondering if anyone has ever had a problem like this and what you
found it to be. It only happens so far on very hot days, I have
notice that the cooling fan seems to be running which is one of the
few times I've ever noticed it running when the engine wasn't
You turn the key and get the gauge reading like you should when
trying to start, but it doesn't even turn over and you don't even hear
the starter trying to turn or anything.. Wait and wiggle the steering
wheel arould and it will start after awhile.
Could be a loose connecion on the ignition swich, broken wire
in the steering column, .. Ideas??
Just don't like the idea of my wife driving it somewhere and getting
stranded, but don't want to take it to a shop to just start replacing
parts without an idea of what it is.
Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
