When I start the engine and allow it to run for 10 to 15minutes it works but when I decice to move out quickly and did not allow it to run for 10minutes, the engine goes off when the gear is engaged, but when I allow it to rest for another15mins and I crank it, its starts again.

Do you
have the same problem?

Do you mean it does not crank after it stalls or it cranks but would not restart?
After restarting, do you have to wait for it to warm up?
What is the idling rpm when it is first started?
Is the Malfunction Indicator Light showing?

Yes it does not ccrank after it stalls, the idle rpm is 1000rpm, after leaving it for more than 15minutes and I crank again it then picks up. Until the next day it starts alloveragain
