i am so sorry for error in my text : I start engine normaly and drived for engine heat becom normal ( half gage) and I can drive for any time normaly but when I turnoff engine and attempt to start engine (after short time period from engine turnoff) engine start normaly and shutdown after 5-10 s with out any code or errer and when I let go engine for 15-30 min to cool engin I can start engine normaly and drive for any period, but if I stop and turn off engine the problem return and I must let go engine cool to start again.

So when it wont start for 15-30 mins does the engine crank meaning the starter is spining it around trying to start it?Or there is a no crank no start meaning the starter is inop?I need to know this?

The starting normal and engine runing normal and I can drive car for any time period (1h, 2h.) Until I stop and shutoff engine every think ok, but if I comeback to start engine ( before engine heat down from normal 1/2 to 1/3 temperature gage, therfor I leave the car for 15-30 mins to let engine heat down under 1/3 gage, I mean after I leave car for short time and rutern to operate car ) engine start normal and engine operate (run ) normal but after 5-10 s engine shutdown.
There is no problem with starting process or engine opration but the problem engine shutdown after 5-10 s after good start and runing, thats if I dont let engine temp. Down 1/3 or less.
The problem happens when I press full accelerator to have high rpm 4000 befor 5 month and know I use car but I let engine heat down befor second starting,
thanks
