Sounds like the fuel pump has an issue,
seen this before with a stuck check vavle in the pump. the fuel pressure relief valve retains pressure.
once the fuel pump primes the line is over presurizes to line and hydro locks the fuel injectors....
the test i use.
drive car around for 10 miles, ending back at your place to work on it.
shut car off and try to restart. it should fail.
Carefully lossen the test screw on the fuel rail.
allow the fuel pressure to lower.
try to restart. if it starts after releasing the pressure then you know the vavle in the fuel pump is not allowing the pressure to release from the fuel line.

455ranger husqvara,i run it till it needs gas,it wont restart till an hour, sometimes it wont restart till next day. Do you know why?

Sounds like just too low compression. This will keep it from starting. Do a compression test and wright down the reading. Remember, when it's warmed up, the heat has made the cylinder expand a bit so the compression is going to be down. If the rings are warn out, that will drop the compression even more when it's warm. Fence the no start when warm.

Do you smell gasoline fuel ?? When there's too much fuel, it saturates the spark plugs, preventing ignition. Let it sit for an hour to let spark plugs dry, then it starts OK later. Next time, turn starter without giving any throttle or very small throttle as engine turns. Myself, when my 2006 Dodge Plymouth minivan (sitting in storage) needs to start, I squirt (half second) starting fluid into air filter, close the air filter housing to trap flammable gas from starting fluid, then turn the engine without pressing on throttle. When the engine starts is when I give it a little throttle to bring up the RPM to 2,000 until it idles on its own without stalling from cold engine.

1988 22r pickup have to pump the gas now before starting 15 to 20 times. i didnt use to have to pump the gas before every start if it sits more than 10 hours it wont start unless i start pumping the gas...

Seems like the choke is not turning on. The 22r uses a carb if I'm not mistaken. pump it a couple of times then try pressing the pedal completely down before trying to start it. Then press the pedal half way down. the point is to set the choke when you press the pedal all the way down.

Ford fiesta 2006 cold start problem, at first it was first thing in the morning but since it can do the same thing after being driven for a few hours. If left for about 10min when you go back to start it,...

Do as the instruction book tells you, It allows the heaters on fuel system time to warm up thats why you need to give it that extra time & do as it states, then you should have no more problems. Hope this helps Best wishes, Malcolm Campbell.
