So far, I've rebuilt my starter, replaced my battery. The car starts fine when it's cold or been sitting for a long time (over night or a couple of hours), but sometimes when I go for short drives and such it doesn't restart once I turn it off. The starter doesn't click, and sometimes it just clicks once. WHen the weather is hot and the engine's hot, it seems harder to start, why is this? Frustrating stuff. Help, thanks

Problem is likely a battery cable or the one going to the starter. Clean/replace and see if that helps. Battery cables can cause all kinds of strange things.

also try checking the safety switch behind the clutch pedal, you can unplug it, and jumper it with some spare wire so you can start the car without the clutch ingaged.
