Hi Paul.

If the engine does not stall and only have a problem starting when hot but after 15 - 30 minutes will restart then this is normally a bad crankshaft sensor .

Very common issue that we see with many makes and models .

Also possible is a bad Ignition coil .

What happens is when the crank sensor gets hot they fail ,in most cases will not trip the check engine light .

but check for crank/cam sensor codes .

Need further assistance with this issue then please get back to me with the reply box below .
After rating there is no further cost for any other question relating this issue .
Kind regards Greg

There is no codes showing on the diagnostic tool
Crack sensor had already been changed because we did have a problem showing on there

Okay good thank you Paul .

Next time you have a No start situation check for spark , fuel pressure .

What i would do is when no start situation spray EZstart down the throttle body when cranking over the engine

if she starts then we have a fuel supply issue ,no start check for spark at the plugs ,no start possibler bad coil .

Check this then please get back to me .
