    If I start my car bone cold let it warm up for a few and drive getting it up to temp,then stop at a store. Sometimes it wont restart UNLESS I hold it to the floor. It cranks but wont start. I will try it and eventually it will kill the battery. I'm almost thinking the starter is getting to hot from my down pipe. Any thoughts?

    I've seen this with old fuel pumps, upset dizzy (as mentioned above), upset plugs and wires, and even injectors.

    You say you think it may be the starter, does it sound like it's struggling to move the wheel?
