Subject: Warm-type starting problem with '88 9000s

I believe I am having troubles that are similar to the known "warm start problem." I just purchased this '88 9000s that has 80,000 miles on it. Absoultely beautiful car that drives like a dream. However, if I have been driving it for awhile (highway driving), when I turn it off (i.e. at a rest stop...) and come back to it to start it back up, it won't turn over. It doesn't even click. All the lights come on, but the car just responds like I haven't told it to start. Waiting for ~10 minutes will allow it to start right up on the 1st try. I have never had any starting problem after driving it around town, or for short hauls. After long hauls, this problem is now seeming inevitable. Is this a common problem with any car? I have been reading archives, and it seems that the warm start problem exhibits similar behavior, but there it at least starts, or tries to. Here there is nothing. Any help as to where I should look? I am taking it into a mechanic, but am not optomistic. Thank you, Kevin O'Buckley -----== Posted via Deja News, The Leader in Internet Discussion ==----- Now offering spam-free web-based newsreading
