Car won't start after driving

Asked by GuruNF7C3 Nov 08, 2019 at 10:05 AM about the 2010 Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2010 Toyota Camry.  When I get up in the
morning the car starts and drives fine. But after
driving  for 20 or 30 mins and I stop and park at a
store and come out it won't start. I have to wait
around two hours before it starts again. It won't
turn over at all. But if I wait about two hours it
starts back up with no problems.Whst could cause
this?

If you're saying that the car runs fine, but that after the engine warms up and you turn it off, the engine's starter motor won't turn at all, the problem is electrical. This could be due to built up resistance in battery cables that are defective, or cable connections that are loose/corroded. Heat builds up and current can't pass properly until the system cools down. If it's more than that, you'll have to get a mechanic to diagnose it..... If you're saying that the starter turns the engine, but that the engine just won't start, I'd also suspect that this is heat related; possibly leaking injectors, bad coils/wires/plugs, or myriad other things related to spark or fuel.
