Hello, I just purch this vehicle. I have a issue with car not wanting to start after it has warmed up. This is a 3800 V-6, 142K, Auto, and when it runs, runs beautifully. Cold starts everytime. Warm up to operate temp, shut off, restart within a couple mins, OK. Problem is if you shut off and try to restart in a 15 - 25 min window, ( run into store for a bit) it will just turn over or try to start and spit and sputter and die. Keep restarting to no avail. The longer you sit and wait, the more it acts like it wants to start. Usually have to let it sit 20 - 30 mins before it will start and then reluctently, it will spit and sputter and if you give it quarter throttle it will come out of it and be ok. Leave it set for 45-60 and it will start up as if nothing wrong and run for hours! As long as you do not shut off ignition.
have the same problem?
