This could very possible be a bad coil , or a bad fuel injector, check the coil to see if you see any cracks in it , in which it would be jumping fire, or it could be a bad fuel injector, you can check each fuel injector, by taking a mechanics stethoscope, and putting the probe to each injector 1 at a time, and have someone crank the engine over to see if you hear a clicking sound coming from the injectors, the one that has the weakest sound or no sound is the bad one . also, you can disconnect each injector wiring connector, 1 at a time, and hook up a noid light to each injector wiring connection, and then turn on the ignition key, but do not start the vehichle, this will show you if there is current coming from the wiring connection to the injector, you can purchase the noid lights at a auto part store. hope that this information has been helpful to you.

Could bad maf sensor and bad idle air valve have vehicle stall then hard to start for awhile and cuts off after 10 minutes of driving

I would also suspect the ignition module. They tend to work ok for a few minutes when they are cold, then fail once they warm up. If you wait awhile for the ICM to cool down, it will work as well as it can until it warms up again. A code scanner is your best friend to know where to start looking, and to perform tests and log data.

Why when first starting or cold start 2007 X-5 4.8i has trouble turning over

You shouldn't have any more trouble on cold start than you do after warm-up. I feel your only problem here is just a weak battery, or possibly only dirty terminals on the battery. I'd clean terminals first, then have your battery load tested to see how good it comes back up.

Try replaceing the fuel pump relay its inthe glove box behind a panal and also check the oil pressure sending unit because that is a back up power supply for your system. But the relay should solve the problem

I had a truck that acted similar and it turned out being the coil! It ran fine on idle but once it warmed up it missed and had trouble starting. Good Luck!!

This sounds like it could be timing or emissions related. My suspicoin is that it is emission related, since often valves and switches etc may be actuivated by or recirculate warm air etc. Have you checked the timing ? Did you find the meaning of the trouble code ? It would be nice to have a more in depth discussion about this can you e-mail me ?
