This sounds like a timing problem as we call it 'pre-ignition' have the timing checked as this will be advanced and not on the right settings, the cam belt could have skipped a tooth, check all the timing marks line up perfectly, has the belts ever been changed ?. Hope this is of some help.

2001 Ford Escape. Sometimes, after sitting 4 or 5 hours, engine turns but won't start. After a short wait and trying again it starts right up. It hasn't shut down while driving, yet. Plugged in a diag


Try turning the key on for two seconds, don't turn to the start position yet, then turn it off, then back on for two seconds, then try to start it. It sounds like you are losing fuel pressure and by cycling the key, you will be re-pressurizing the system. It's usually caused by a faulty fuel pressure regulator that is not holding pressure properly.
This will not set a diagnostic code usually,and on the rare occasion it does, the code will read as a "lean" problem.......not enough fuel

Sounds like a venting problem with the gas tank. There is a vent for the tank that could be blocked and not allowing pressure to equalize.
Like sucking milk from a bottle without allowing it to vent.
The vent could involve the canister purge system.

Corolla shuts off during left hand turns and hard stops


Wow. These are tough to find unless you are willing to roll the car up on it's right side and then check the power to the system. ..
Look for loose connections going through things that might move or the wires connected to the starter (sometimes the power wire is connected to the battery line at the starter solenoid).
Could also be at the ignition switch.
