Barina If the engine turned off in drive, won't start for a while, maybe 20min. Is this normal?
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a professional here at Just Answer/Pearl. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

On some vehicles the engine uses a crank position sensor.This sensor will heat up with engine temperature and when it does it can fail to operate properly which in turn can cause a stall out and no start until the vehicle sits for a period of time.This does sound like an electronic component at fault here and if this engine is equipped with a crank position sensor this sensor is most common to cause this here.

This would need to be looked into/tested further to be sure.

Thanks Pete
