Hello , when it dies how long does it take before it starts back up?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
1 hour or more
Expert:  Lou P. replied 4 months ago.

ok so the first thing we can check is the crank sensor, the best way to test that is to pour ice cold water over the sensor as soon as the car dies and wont restart, if you pour ice water over it and it starts right back up then that is the issue, what engine do you have?
