Truck runs and starts fine when warmed up but is difficult to start after sitting for a few days must be turned over 5 or 6 times possible reasons?

Fuel is draining out of the fuel lines back into the tank. When you turn the key on you should let it sit for 10 or 15 seconds to let the fuel pressure build back up in the lines, then turn it to start it.

I have a 1995 acura integra it will crank sometimes, and when i drive it the car bogs down and cuts off will not crank untill it sits for awhile

Sounds like a Vapor Lock, check and see if the fuel line is exposed to the exhaust manifold heat any where. If not that it could be the fuel filter or trash in tank is being sucked up and stopping up your fuel line. Also sometimes the MAF Sensor can go crazy and cause all kinds of problems. You need to have Auto Zone to put it on a Computer and run a diagnostic test on it. Had a friend who rebuilt a wrecked Mustang and it would start and run a few seconds and then go dead. I helped him for a half day and we couldn\'t find the problem. Finally he pulled the intake off from the filter and a Wasp nest that had fallen down was being sucked against the MAF sensor and killing the engine. When the engine stopped it would fall off and let the engine start then suck it back up and kill the engine!

I wouldn\'t think you have a Wasp nest problem but crazy things happen.

Car cuts off while driving will not start til after it sits for a few minutes

It sounds like it may be a fuel filter. When the engine is running there is a vacuum created to send fuel to the engine. If there is dirt in the fuel line, it soon blocks the fuel and the engine will die. After the car sits and the vacuum is released, the fuel will flow again until it soon plugs up. Replace your inline filters. It is an inexpesinve fix. If that doesn't work, it may be the in tank filter, you will need a mechanic to replace in tank filters.
