It will always start first thing in the morning, but after you have driven it for a while and come out to restart it fires and stops then won't start. Usualy after about 10 minutes it will start again. Happened twice yesterday.
I don't believe its flooded, (don't smell gas) Its as though there is no gas getting to the plugs temporarily.
Runs perfectly otherwise, no misiing or rough idle.
Do you

First you need to check for fuel pressure when it wont start, if it is present check for spark. One of these two is missing if it wont light up. Temp related issues are ususaly cam or crank position sensors that short out when hot, but will cool down and work, but fuel pumps can do this as well, so check for pressure then spark to see what is missing.
