My 2012 Acadia has developed a starting (or lack of starting!) issue after it has warmed up / run for awhile.

After turning the key.... any one of the following occurs:

-Starts normal, also known as having a good day  thumbs up
-Hard / labored cranking for several seconds, but eventually does start, also known as slightly worrisome  shrug
-No noises, no cranking, nothing.... must leave it for hours and try again  thumbdown

I don't even know where to begin  shrug The engine was recently out to have the timing chains replaced, seems to have started following that repair. Any idea where I could begin with DIY, this is an already traded-in vehicle, that I'm still driving until the 2017 eventually arrives.

Sounds like an intermittent electrical problem. I'd start by checking cable connections at the starter and making sure they're all tight.  shrug
