08 GLS 2.4 175K - Regular maintenance at regular intervals, ignition switch at 105k ($160) only thing out of the ordinary

Cold starts are always fine - but if only drive 5 minutes or so, restarting is sometimes a problem. First symptom is it will start but idles at about 500rpm and will stall once in gear - second start is always a charm. Second symptom is starter will turn and turn but won't catch - I let it sit 20-30 seconds - will start on the second or third try - this is not nearly as frequent as the first symptom. At normal op temp starts fine.

Guy at autozone said to try a tank of high octane - that it might be compression?

TIA

Yeah, could be a number of things
Got to test to find out what is wrong

But, my wild guess would be the crankshaft sensor

Good luck

Fuel pumps and timing chain stretch /jump been the only real problems at high mileage,,

Did we scan yet to see if anything hide in memory ??

When running, any unusual sound from engine

Plugs up to date ?

My guess as avisitor said the crankshaft position sensor. I don't think you model will log a fault code with that one and they start off cutting the engine out after it warms up before they give up completely.
You also may have a starter problem.
Autozone is talking thru their but with the fuel fix.
