Have had a random no start condition four times in two years. Weather was not hot, between 50 and 75 deg. F.
After a 50 +/- mile trip vehicle rested only a few minutes and had to be moved. Tried to start, engine cranked but missed and backfired through intake and barley ran even with throttle to floor, similar to an out of time condition. Opened hood to look around to notice intake manifold hot as a pistol. (This may have been due to backfire and combustion taking place in manifold.)
I asked a mechanic friend about it and said "It's got to be the ECM. This was replaced and it happened again. Now what? A sensor affected by heat?
have the same problem?
