Moved the pig out of the garage this morning to clean the garage. Moved it back in after I was done. Went to take a quick trip to the store and all I hear is a "whurrrrrrr" sound. Definately not turning the engine over. surrender.gif

Is not throwing any codes. I tried rocking it forward and back in gear to see if it just slipped, nothing but whurrr....Son of a B*tch...

Starter or timing chain?

Alright...I am an idiot...I way... over-reacted. Ireplaced the main fuel pump awhile back so I didnt even think it could be the pump. As always you have to try one more time. Well it took a second of the starter running, sputtered and started (running rough). I turned it off. I just got done pulling all of the coils and plugs. They look in great condition. I just put in new plugs and ...-08 part # coils less than a year ago. I am going to pull the fuse for the one pump and see if it will idle...

I broke all the rules...panic, jumping to conclusions....need the **** thing to work because I need to tow my grill to cook for 80+ coworkers for a tailgate.

**** thing just started up fine. Took it for a quick ride....told the wife I would call her to come get me if it broke down. No issues, fast acceleration and great idle. I am low on gas (idiot light came on) so now I am thinking "check valve". Still worried that the sound I heard is a pending bad starter.

I haven't studied up on a possible cause for this, but I have the same issue. My CS starts just fine the first time. Drive it around a bit, park it... if I attempt to start it back up within about 5 minutes though, it will take a few seconds of cranking before it fires up. To be honest, it didn't bother me, as I have a sportscar that does the exact same thing, and is actually designed to do that. Some sort of mechanism to make cold start easier, but it isn't active if the engine is already warmed up.
