99 Buick Riviera wont turn over after running when its hot

Have a 99 Buick Riviera that will run perfectly then once it is turned off it will not even turn over. This only happens when it is hot. If it sits for 5 or 10 min it will then start. Any ideas of what to look into?

1967 buick riviera 430 dist firing order also vacuum diagram for engine and does dist wire go on pos side of coil?

F.O. is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. Rotor turns clockwise. Wire from coil to distributor is from negative side of coil. The positive side of coil is for hot wire originating from ignition switch. Always hot with key on.
For vacuum diagram, just google "1967 Buick Riviera 430 cu in, vacuum diagrams" . It is there.

Starts but wont turn over

I'd check fuel line pressure,,Fuel pumps go in strange ways
and have fooled lots of people, make sure you know what the correct pressure is as it vary's from model to model,I had a Cadilac that blew me away as I thought it was ok only to find it did have wrong pressure,,replaced and runs good after that,,also if you have lots of miles on this car it could be catalatyic converter is plugging up,,notice the exhust output see if it is coming out both tailpipes ok
