it turns over
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 11 months ago.

ok, this is usually caused by a bad fuel pump, and it is common for them to be intermittent, and usually it happens on a hot soak after driving it a bit and shutting it off, and then once it cools down, it restarts, have you tried spraying starting fluid in it, when it wont start and seeing if it runs briefly
