You might have leaking valve seats they are expensive to replace, what happens is while your driving they let some oil go past them resulting in oil being dripped into the cylinderwhere the gasoline is supposed to go ..its hard to start because it needs to burn off the oil first.

    if its vapor lock look around at your fuel lines they have to be getting really hot somewhere and thats where the vapor lock occurs..glad to hear its not those valve seats...

I have the same thing with my 94 ex where I will be driving and it cuts off and takes forever to start after what do I look for to fix this problem. It only occurs when it's 80 degrees and warmer.

    the PGM FI Relay is notorious for going bad on hondas, it tends to act up when it is hot. try this, when the car wont start kick the kickpanel (the area near the hood release latch)

Mine is a 96 Civic. It was hard to start and I smelled gas. I was a hole in the fuel line; I had a leak.

My car when the sun hit, dont start


Do you mean you have trouble starting it when it is hot outside? If so get the battery checked first, heat and cold stress the battery.

If you mean you lose power as you drive when its hot out, that is a whole other problem.
Good Luck

95 honda civic ex squeals when starting engine


Some of the grime, etc on the engine prior to steam cleaning along with any solvents used may have affected the drive/fan belt. I would suggest you either check tightness of the belt and possibly consider replacing it.
