Question about Cars & Trucks
Seems to me that I've run across this problem 3 or 4 times over the years on different cars. Problem usually comes down to either fuel system, electrical system (including sensors), or the coolant system (including sensors). I ran into this most recently on an '89 Escort. Wound up replacing fuel pump relay, ignition relay, TPS sensor, ignition module, coolant temp switch, coolant pump (and timing belt while I was in there). Fixed a couple of engine grounds and a couple of misc things. Point is that there is probably more than one item at fault.

SOURCE: 95 saturn won't start when hot
Blair, I would take a look at he TPS (throttle position sensor) located on the throttle body. In other words, it sounds as thought sensor when heated is changing its value to "open" or "shorted".
If the car starts OK when cold, use a hair dryer to heat the TPS when the engine is cold to see if you can duplicate the problem.
Also is the a service engine light on? Codes?
If you have a "digital volt/ohm meter" available you can read the variable resistance of the sensor when the problem occurrs to determine if the sensor is defective.

SOURCE: rough running
Computers aren't ALWAYS correct. If a code wasn't cleared after the original problem, it will read the same codes off to the diagnostic. I would remove the wire connector to each injector while it's running. If one of them makes no difference THAT is your culprit. Let me know please!
