Q: 98 explorer sport won't start warm sometimes

asked by on

My 1998 explorer sport starts and runs fine but sometimes after a few miles i shut it off, run in store, come back out and she won't start. Wait 15-30 mins she starts back up. Turns over fine and has not died while driving.

My car has 183000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
