Car will start good in the mornings or evenings but after

Well I would start by checking for fuel pressure. Check you manufacturers factory spec for fuel pressure. If the fuel pressure is even 5-10 psi low, it will be a problem. Check for spark when this is happening. Install a spark test between spark plug and wire. If bad or no spark, it may need an ignition module.They will act up when hot.

Hard starting when the car is hot

The cars vacuums act different when the car is hot. My does the same. Be patient, bump it over a couple times to let it start. If it doesn't start than apply just a little peddle. You may have a tune up put on it.
