1988 camero: everytime my car reaches at least 150 degrees and I shut the car off if won't start again until the car has cooled to below 150 degrees. I have replaced the starter and solinoid and put a heat shield on as well, with no positive results. I have a 4 core radiator and have replaced the thermostat so the car normally runs about 190 degree. Any suggestions what to do next.

I would try a remote solenoid like ford uses.
I use one on my camaro becouse of the headers. But it works great.

Do you mean the starter won't turn over or the motor just won't start

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>nothing happens, but since it is a standard transmission I can push it and pop the clutch and the car will start.

The soleoid is sticking in it housing or the return spring is too heavy. Try changing the soleoid first. If it doesn't have headers you shouldn't need any of the trick fixes.

Thanks for the advise. I think I will try a ford solonoid before anything else.
