Occasional trouble starting
I have a 1998 Sub Outback that has occasional issues starting. I have only noticed the problem on short trips to the store and such. I will drive a few miles to the store, run inside and then when I come back out the car will turn over but won't fire. Then if I wait about 10 minutes and try again it generally fires right up. It does not seem to matter how many times that I try before the 10 minutes or so mark, it just won't fire, and then mysteriously it will decide to fire. Other than this issue, that happens about once every two weeks, the car runs tip top. Ideas...
