MODELS STARTER FAILS WHEN CAR IS WARM

1998 Saturn Other

Electrical problem
1998 Other Saturn Models 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 150000 miles

I have a 1998 Saturn SR2. It will start fine as long as the car has been sitting for at least 3 hours. If I drive it for more than 5 minutes and then try to restart it all I get is a " click" from the starter.

Luckily it's a standard so I've taken to starting it with a push.
Otherwise the car runs very well.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Double check connections at the battery and starter.

Could mean a problem with the ignition switch/clutch switch/starter relay or the starter itself. Try this when it goes click-hold key at crank position and bang on the starter if it engages the engine replace the starter.
