Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Is this only occuring after the vehicle sits for a few hours or more or does it occur if you were to shut it off then try and start it again right away?

Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.
