at first it fired feebly then would not fire. It would crank fast but no ignition. After about an hour it started right up and ran fine

    Start by pulling codes, that may lead towards the circuit that caused the problem, but many times a tech will have to get it to act up and do the diagnostics while it won't start to prove what happened.

    The fast cranking and no ignition sounds like possible timing belt jumped time. Could also be the reason it was running fine before you shut it off and fired off feebly then quit running.
