Car has failed to start twice and was unable to restart for several days each occurrence. Have eliminated battery and ignition relay as causes. Towed to dealer after 2nd event and left for them to diagnose. Car started immediately when they started and were unable to make it fail. Car returned unrepaired. Still not sure of root cause. Mechanic suspects intermittent issue with the starter motor but didn't want to recommend replacement without confirming that it is the problem since that's an expensive job.

Occasional starting difficulties remain. I've narrowed it down to the ignition switch since I can usually jiggle the key or hold it in the start position longer to make it work. Now that I know that I'm less inclined to have it repaired due to cost. If problem persists then I'll have a mechanic look at the ignition switch stack.

Valve adjust. The engine started sounding "sewing machine-ish" - and - fuel economy was tanking into the 14 MPG range. Interestingly, when torn down to the head covers, every intake valve was in spec, requiring no adjustment. On the other hand, every exhaust valve was so tight the correct feeler gauge couldn't wiggle into or even feel the difference between valve stem tip and tappet. I always associated valve train noise with excessive lash, but that wasn't the case here.
