Question [URG] So my car really doesn't like not being warmed

I started my car yesterday and ran it for maybe 5-7minutes total. I was topping up the power steering and I wanted to turn the steering lock to lock. Then I took it around the block but obviously it still hadn't warmed up.

Today I go to turn it on and it sputtered and died before I even had a chance to touch the gas. Now it wont start. It cranks beautifully over and over but no start. I tried my best to push-start it down my street but to no avail.

I've had this happen one other time where I just ran the car for a few minutes from cold and then didn't start it until a few days later. It ran really rough and almost died but I kept it alive.

What do I do?

1998 BMW 328is - summer
1992 Ford E250 Sportsmobile - daily
1993 BMW 525i - sold
1994 BMW 325i - sold
1992 BMW 325i - gone
1988 Mercedes Benz 190E 2.3-8V -
