    It will start right up in the morning but if I run it for 5 or 6 mins shut it off it will not start back up but all it will do is backfire as you are cranking it.Let it sit for awhile and it will start back up. So what do I need to look at ?

    Please add your Hijet details as a signature, such as engine type, built year, automatic/manual transmission, that will help us to help you. Click on your name top right, new window will open, click signature. See my signature as example.
    Older Hijet? With carburetor? Fuel injection? Mileage? Any maintenance done? What did you check / test so far?
    For example here we discuss such a problem on an S83p engine https://minitrucktalk.com/threads/cold-start-almost-impossible.22462/#post-130504
