Does the problem happen once the engine has warmed up, or when it is cold or anytime?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
When warmed up and driven a while.

Have you checked for fuel pressure at the fuel injectors when the engine will not start?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No....since it was starting after it cooled....thought it would be electronic part....theres a 3" sq box on right fender with cable attached to throttle that get so hot u cant touch it toch it
Expert:  A. Penland replied 1 year ago.

That box is the cruise control servo.

But the fuel pump is electronic and it can heat up and cause a no start problem.
