Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck will start the first time.  I can drive it, it runs fine.  When I try to restart it
within a  few minutes of turning it off, it won't start.  It turns over but it won't
start.  New coil, selenoid, plugs, wires, dist... Any ideas?

Does the condition throw a code? Crank position sensor and ignition control module could cause the problem. The crank sensor may not throw a code but the control module should. Both of these can fail under a heat condition, but somehow manage to burst back to life when they cool down.
