1996 Saturn SL II starting problem Sign In

My Saturn has 133,000 miles and has been an extremely reliable car. Just in the last couple of months I have been having trouble with it starting. When I go to work, it starts right up. when i come out of work, it starts right up. when I have to do errands and make numerous starts, it won't start. I have to push the clutch in and out a couple of times and after 3 or 4 attempts, it will start. Starter or Clutch relay? thanks and appreciate any info. Eric

Sounds like a solenoid. Not really expensive or hard to change. Could even be the plunger. Take the step by step directions in this guide on this site, it should help, but i think its your solenoid.
