Question about Chevrolet 2500
I have a 1963 Chevy stepside with a 327 engine, after reaching running temperature, it wont start. It acts like it is out of fuel or timeing ,it drags. and after trying it a few times it starts right up.
(1)Remove the air cleaner, looking down the primary throttle bore (front) move the throttle at the carburetor. Did you see fuel spray? if so its not a fuel related issue.
(2)Next, check your battery cables. High resistance in a cable (corrosion) will get worse with heat. Heat increases resistance. You may want to replace them depending how old they are. You need to check for condition and security of how they are connected ( good tight, clean connections). Sometimes its difficult to spot corrosion with the plastic insulation on top of the cable. Corrosion is usually at the ends where the bare wire is exposed.
(3) May have a bad starter. My old Ford would crank slow when hot. Found bad cables, but eventually had to replace starter too. Works great now.

You need to check distributor cap/wiring/spark plugs. when engine cold resistans at electric parts/connections is low. Then it warms up it increases and electric current goes down. Maybe you have bad connection somethere. Your car is equpped with digital motor electronics fuel (DME) injection. Here there is component location and diagnostic:
Also I would check fuel injectors itself (use injector cleaner), fuel filter (replace). If no help MAF sensor, trottle position sensor. There is good repair guide here:
Please kindly let me know if this info was usefull for you or you need more info.

Just from what you said it sounds like your vehicle might not be holding its residual pressure which means after you turn a vehicle off, your fuel injection system should hold a certain amount of pressure in the system, but if that pressure drops to fast your vehicle may have a hard time starting. Things to look for when you lose fuel pressure is the fuel pressure regulator may be leaking, fuel pump check valve,leaky fuel injector or they maybe a small leak in one of the fuel lines. I only suggested this cause i had a car with the similar problem.
