Does it matter if it is hot or cold? How long since last tune up?

I think it does because it's been sitting a couple of days & i put a new battery today it fired right up but then after that it died & was super hard to get started again
Mazda Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

So it dies on it's own ? When last tuned up?
