Change the fuel filter, If this does not work you need a fuel pressue gauge to make sure you have enough pressure. IF you don't change the fuel pump.

03 suzuki grand vitara starts up in morning after 10 minutes its warm drive to town shut off wont start back starts and dies starts and dies 3 times then starts and runs till next shut off

check whether you do have a problem with your cam or crank sensor. Or the fuel pump whether when it gets warm stop working,(loosing the pressure ) These things you do need a specialist to check the sensors and the fuel pump.

Rent a fuel pressure gauge, and connect it to your fuel rail. Turn on the ignition and see what the fuel pressure is. Where you rented the gauge should be able to tell you what the pressure should be (usually 18-20 psi). It could be the pressure regulator or fuel filter ... beside the fuel pump.

Have to turn switch off 2 or more times to start first thing in morning then smell gas. if shut off and restart after a short stop after warmed up popps and back fires and bearly runs like flooded have to...

If you smell fuel, then there is a fuel leak. If the fuel is leaking, then the fuel system is not able to hold proper pressure in the fuel rail. Find the source of the leak and repair. The leak is most likely small, and when you cycle the key, the pump can pressurize the system, but not to its full pressure rating. Fuel pressure is a critical criteria that must be consistent at all times for proper engine performance.

Truck wont start in the morning or if it sitts for a couple of hours.I have 60 psi fuel pressure and i have spark. When i try to start it just keeps turning over. If I use starting fluid it starts right...

I think your fuel pressure is borderline.How accurate is the gauge? Those injectors usually wont work under 58psi. I would replace the fuel pumpp and filter if the truck has over 125K miles on the original pump. .

On hot days when I stop for gas, I shut the car

Fuel pump worn out and is weak, when the fuel is warm the pump expands and the fuel pressure is good. When the colder gas is added or when the gas has cooled down the fuel pump.
The pump can not create enough pressure to run the fuel injector due to the piston and sleeve in the pump are worn out, you might get another year if you lucky by replacing your fuel filer.
Start with the simple and replace your fuel filter and check your fuel pressure readings at the shredder valve on your fuel injector rails. You should have i think 56 PSI to run them properly.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

Turn on the key and listen by the fuel tank for the fuel pump to hum. A common problem is low fuel pressure. It will build pressure when the key is turned, use that fuel, and then the pressure drops. Kind of like when you're using a squirt gun that's getting empty.

Car will start good in the mornings or evenings but after

Well I would start by checking for fuel pressure. Check you manufacturers factory spec for fuel pressure. If the fuel pressure is even 5-10 psi low, it will be a problem. Check for spark when this is happening. Install a spark test between spark plug and wire. If bad or no spark, it may need an ignition module.They will act up when hot.

Sporadicly the car won't start , or it takes three cranks atleast to get it to turn over..i think its not getting fuel but i need help,,anyone?!?

Most likely your fuel pump is giving out. Im not 100% sure but I think the Fuel Pump and the Fuel Filter are located inside the fuel tank. Could be a tough job to take on by yourself.
