I have a 2003 Saturn Ion, 2 wheel drive, manual transmission. 50,000 miles. Over the last few months there have been a couple of times it wouldn't start, seemingly random. Over the last couple weeks it has happened more frequently. It only happens when I have recently turned OFF the ignition. If I wait at least 15 minutes or more it seems to start fine. Although if I don't drive far, turn it off and try it again it seems fine. Basically it is as if something is overheating (although the gauge does not show this). A friend said it may be the started solenoid is overheating? Could this be true? Is it possible to replace this without having to get a whole new starter?
