Could be a few things. The mass airflow sensor could be dirty or faulty. Once you shut off and start again it returns to factory specs and will run for a little while before same thing happens. Could be a bad fuel pump. When they are going bad they overheat and shut down. Once they are cool, the pump works for a while till the same scenario occurs. Do you have a check engine light? If so, what are the codes?
I went through a the same problem with a Toyota it would start perfect in morning and if I shut it off it wouldn't start hot anyway I would be willing to be it's the ect(engine coolant temperature) sensor. If your car has 2 it's the one for the computer
Hi.. I had a very similar problem recoverrd to are workshop by the A.A around a month ago.
Exactly the same problem (left to cool started.? Once worm or hot engine just turning over ?)
Afdter reading all known folts and finding nothing to do with what I'd wanted. It took some time ?
Cutting it sort if found when I replaced a intermittent faulty fuel relay and run till engine hot (untill cooling fan cut in) Then turned off engine .. on turning key to see if this had cured my problem?
The engine started frist turn of key after repeating this a number of times .. this car was now starting fine (whether hot or cold)
Hopefully this will be of some help to yourselves

boost vehicle but before you do that remove the fuse for the cooling fan till you get it to turn over once its running plug said fuse back in and get it to a shop to have them diagnose why the fan is on to long
Misfire means you need spark plugs replaced. Or spark plug coils.
That's why the whole car starts shaking because its running basically on 3 cylinders and not 4 as supposed. There is no gas compression on the 3rd cylinder because once again the spark plug is "misfiring"
There also might be even a bigger problem which could be the distributor cap where the coils are connecting outside the engine. once you fix the problem the check engine will turn off immediately
do you mean wont crank over and start till it cools off? if thats the case it sounds like you got a bad crankshaft position sensor,,thge sensor is fine when its cold and warm but when it gets hot it goes open and the cars computer cant see the rpm and shuts the engine off,and then when it cools off the sensor works again and the car starts and is ok till it gets hot again,if thats the case thats what it is,,,hope this helps,,,about $100 for the part
The car not starting when warm can be a sign of a low charge in your battery. If it is more than 18 months old (usual warranty period), it could need replacement, since some of the cells are no longer functioning.
Warm starting gasoline engines sometimes needs a higher charge to start it up.
