    hey guys i have a 2006 chevy 2500. sometimes when i go to start it after its already been warmed up i hit the key and it goes to start but dosent. teh starter makes a noise for a second and then you feel a clunk. then you go to start it again and it starts rite up. dosent do it every time but only when i have already ran the truck for a period of time. its doing it more often now so i am thinking its the starter. thanks

    Welcome to the forum! As Customer Service Representatives, we may be a little limited in the technical troubleshooting tips we can provide. Hopefully other members of the community will jump on here to help you out soon if you're hoping to resolve this without visiting a dealership.

    Just so we can better understand what resources to check, are you talking about a remote starter at all?

    no i do not have remote start. it does have the tap ignition thing where you just tap the key and it starts.

    Have you considered having your starting issues diagnosed at your local GM dealership?

    It could be a starter relay issue or the starter itself. Hearing it clunk indicates to me that the solenoid is kicking the gear out but, the starter motor is not spinning. Sometimes when they start to go bad heat can be an issue. That could be why it only happens when it is warm. I would pull the starter, take it to a parts store and have it checked.
