I have been having this problem since last year( maybe since November).
If I drive the vehicle for about 15-20 mins, and turn the engine off, and try to restart the car again(after a 3-5 min wait), it won't start. I have to turn the key for about 3-5 mins( it cranks) then the car will start. When the vehicle finally starts, the engine has a poor idle, but quickly re cooperates. Another option I have is to wait approximately one hour and the car will start( no excessive crank).
I never have problems starting the vehicle in the morning. The vehicle has never died on me while driving either.
As I stated, the vehicle will not start after a 3-5 min wait from a 15-20 min drive. But if I immediately restart the car(no waiting 3-5 mins) the car will start like normal. Strange problem that I have.
