My car cold starts perfect every time. However sometimes after I drive it and then park it this happens. I start it and it runs for one second and then it dies. Then it has to sit for a while before it starts back up. Sometimes up to 3 minutes or so. Never has happens on cold start. Today it happened to me again. I was trying to start it with no luck and I decided to pop the gas gap. There was a rush of air and then I screwed it back on and the car started. I am not sure if it is the gas cap though becasue the car seems to start randomly. Not sure if this is it

Check the above link when it fails to start.

I would suggest checking the PGM-FI main relay. Have the circuit board resoldered and retest.
