The car starts fine and drives perfect, but when you turn it off and try to start it again it will not. Leave it a couple of hours and the car will start. Then repeat once turned off.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi alpie65, Welcome to 2carpros and Ty for the donation

Next time it dies out and refuses to start don't wait for nothing -check if its a fuel or spark problem do below

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
