Any Ideas?

Hello. I have a 2005 Cobalt with 140,000 miles. This morning while warming up at idle, it died. I tried to restart it but it acted like it was completely dead. No crank or anything. A few hours went by, tried it again and it started right up and seems to be running fine. Does anybody have any idea of what is wrong or what part might be on it's last leg? Thanks

If you see any green stuff on any of these 3 connections make sure to clean it well and then re-tighten everything.

You will need a 10mm socket or wrench for these.
