Hello, it cranks over an wont start or it starts and stalls when cold, but once its warm it runs ok?

Randomly won’t start. Cranks fine. Then for some reason will just start normally and run fine. Next time may or may not start

Ok when it doesnt start, do you hear the fuel pump run? Do you smell fuel? If you spray some carb cleaner into the intake will it run when it wont start?

Eather makes no difference. Fuel pump does run and then seems to build pressure and stop
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Seems normal fuel pump wise

Ok if you have fuel then you may have lost spark. When it doesnt fire you will need to see if you have a good blue spark when cranking over the engine. If this is good then you will need to check for diagnostic trouble codes. This link will show how to pull codes and their definition if any are stored.
