the starter does not turn wrawwrawwraw? or kaput...nuthin'?~~

if running hot...the gas can percolate and boil....leading to "vapor lock"....but this usually will happen when you stop after a long drive....stuck in Baker, CA~....but starts right up when the fuel cools back down...if the startermotor, there is a heat shield, or should be one between the starter and exhaust manifold...check for the presence of that one....if NOT turnin' at all is your problem~

i had dat same prublem but u need to feed them more so they wont die on u.
