CAR CRANKS OVER QUICKLY, BUT REFUSES TO START.

If I wait for the perfect oppurtunity, it will fire. While running, it runs smooth and as good as ever. If I turn off and don't allow car to get cold, it will start up quickly and normally. If I let it set for atleast 6-8 hours, then I am fighting to get it started again. 2001 Toyota Corolla 99,250 miles. Runs like new and engine is clean. I have taken it to J.D. Byrider 3 times. No codes or freze frame data. No one knows why it doesn't start cold.

Do you
have the same problem?

Coolant sensor may be an issue as it richens the fuel mixture in cold operation.
