    Engine dies, wont start back up right away. Leave it alone for a bit, then it starts right back up.

    Runs great for a month and then turns over, fires but won't start. Tow it to my mechanic and it starts when we get it there. He drives it for a week with no problems and then returns it to me just to have the same thing happen a month later. AAARRRGGGHHHH!
