I got this fukd up problem with my kota, the motor cranks but will not turn over an start. !frustrated I dunno what the problem is. If i let it sit, or take the battery off, after awhile it starts up, no prob. But shortly after, i'll go to go somewhere an it dont start again. My local shop run diagnotics an say theirs no problem. An some think its my starter sticking. Anyone have any clue as to help?? I hate having my truck down an out.

Nothing i know of was relocated, but i have had people mention to check the grounds, incase they pulled loose from hopping or what not. 1 other suggestion i got, was that the start was sticking an to tap on it with a wrench, to see if it loosens it up. i tried that once, an the truck started, now i'm not sure if that was what made it start, but my starter is drenched in hydro fluid. Thank for the help..

Does it want to start but not idle? I had a problem with it not wanting to idle. It would start then it would stop running as soon as you take your foot off the gas pedal. I changed my battery even though it was still good and I had no problems after that. I don't know if that was the problem but it worked.
