I previously wrote about a starting problem which is on occasion, and always after driving the car for at least a short trip, it will fail to start after being shut down for several minutes or more. Never happens when it is shut down for a long time, only when shut off for 15 minutes or so. I was prepared to go under the hood the next time it happened and it has done so 3 more times over the past week. On each of these occasions I took another shot at starting it before looking under the hood. Normally I turn the key to the on position, listen for the fuel pump then try to start. The last three times it failed to start I tried one time to start it but this time I didn't stop to listen for the fuel pump, just turned it all the way on and it started each time without a problem. Not sure what this means, any thoughts?
