2006 Pontiac Torrent Base 6 Cyl 3.4L
Why does car die right after starting a few times then runs fine?
Only happens when I've been driving then turn car off for a few hours & try to restart. Never has done it from cold start. Once, the ignition continued grinding when I turned it back from start position. No warning lights on.

Check the batterry condition, maybe low of charge or the terminals are loose or corroded. Check also alternator output, perhaps the charging system is failing, check alternator belt also for cracks, replace if necessary.
