If I start my car when its cold it starts right up. But If I go food shopping for 20 mins it gives me a real hard time starting up. It sounds like if out of gas. It takes a good 8 times turning over the motor, then it starts up. But if its cold in the moring it starts right up. It just gives me a bad time just if its still hot or warm then thats when it does'nt fire up, just when its cold.

Check the fuel pressure if its within specs when the engine is at operating temperature

Mine does the same thing, when cold it starts almost before I turn the key then revs at about 1000rpm until normal rinning tempreture is attained. When it is hot I hold the accelerator about half way down and it stats ok, its a matter of working out how cold it must be to start without the pedal being touched

Check the coolant temperature sensor and the fuel pressure-start here
