Will not start after sitting warm.
Chevy Colorado 2007, 95,000 miles. (small four cylinder work truck), This A.M. (20 degrees), I drove to the nearest Walmart to grocery shop (14 miles). When I came out with my groceries (about 1/2 hour later), the truck would not start...just kept spinning the engine over, no catch.
Having happened once before last Fall in warm weather, I went back inside and got a cup of coffee. After drinking the coffee (about twenty minutes), it started right up. After it started the "Check Engine" light did not come on.
As I said, it happened to me before in the Fall. I had made a trip of about 60 miles or so, and when I stopped and shut it off (got turned around, I was asking some construction workers for directions), and when I returned (less than five minutes or so), It would not start...just cranked. After giving-up on it ever starting...figured the fuel pump had possibly failed, after considering my options and getting ready to call for a tow, I tried once more and it started right up (no check engine light)and there was no more starting problems until today.
What I am sure of, is that I did not step on the accelerator, flooding it, so let us not go there...waste of time.
What could it be and if there is a problem, why is there no code generated that indicates the problem?
