Car occasionally wont start. Wait for 5-60 minutes, it'll start.

Asked by May 01, 2015 at 06:06 PM about the 1999 Honda Civic

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This normally happens on a warmer day. Happens once a month or less. Seems totally
random. Battery is new. Alternator is not.

I think it has a tendency to happen right after I've driven it for a bit, turned it off for 10-
100 minutes, and tried to turn it on again. Not totally sure, though.

(related?) The car's battery light flickers/turns on sometimes while driving (yes, more
often on those days).. shifting to D3 often makes it go off.

(related?) There's a really squeaky belt in the front drivers side corner. Whistling
decreases when accelerating (I think)..

(fyi) 215,000 miles
