Bonnyville won't start

Hello, I have a 1990 Pontiac Bonnyville SSE.If the car has been running for a while and I turn it off and try and start it again right away it won't turn over. If I wait aprox 30 minutes it will start. Any ideas as to why it's doing this? Thanks

You need to determine if you lack spark or fuel during the troubled time.

See my post/notice at the top of the forum page.

are you saying the motor won't spin. I'm thinking your starter is overheating and will not start untill it cools.

well I changed the spark plugs and that worked for a day and now it's doing it again. It just won't catch and I don't want to drain the battery trying. I think I'll take it in and have someone, put it on that machine that gives you codes to determine the problem. The starter is only a few months old. Thanks for your help

Well I got the car fixed and it ended up being one of those darn cam sensors. Man I hate those sensors lol
