A couple weeks back I went out to start my car and it wouldn't start. It would crank and when I would release the key from start position it continued to crank. I couldn't get it to start. Tried everything. Put car in neutral made sure clutch was in all the way. My mileage was at 2300 miles. Anyone might know the issue. I could only think electrical? Reason for the starter to continue to crank. Hasnt happened again but took about 10 minutes to finally get my car started. I am @ 3600miles now.

Hmmm, if the clutch switch wasn't all the way in. It wouldn't even crank over. So thats not it.
Was the same "key" used the whole time? Sounds like it might be a passlock issue with the key. If it does it again. Keep a spare splug around and see if the car has spark when you turn it over. IF you have a friend around. This trick takes two :)
