Starts when cold when i turn off engine vehicle recieves no fire

most likely the module that goes inside of your distributor is bad.i had the same thing happen to me on my astro van i owned a few years ago.i would drive it for a while then shut it would not start until it completely cooled down, then it would start back up right away.i replaced the module inside the distributor( which cost me about 45 dollars at the time)and the van never had that problem would start up every time no matter how many times i turned it on or off.hope this info helps you.take care and good luck, manny
