Basically it's an electrical component of the ignition system that is affected by heat. You can overlook spark plugs and wiring. It's component beyond those, like a coil, igniter etc. The auto parts store can test components for you. Don't replace part by try and error. Most stores won't accept returns on electrical parts. In diagnosis, omit those words "might as well". It will cost you $$. Best way to fix any failure is to learn how it works to learn why it 's not working anymore. That's how a professional should work. Today they use a computerized analyzer, Not brains. You can opt to visit an pro auto repair shop for them to identify the faulty component w/ their analyzer for a one hour service fee, Cool down, restart and come home to do it DIY.

2001 sunfire start good cold but not when engine is hot


It sounds like you have a "flooding" problem, where you are getting too much fuel on the warm start. It takes more fuel to start a cold engine than a warm one. By holding the pedal the pedal to the floor, you are telling the computer to do a "clear flood" operation, and that lets you start the car. The culprit is probably the Coolant Temperature Sensor. If this is faulty, it will tell the computer that that the coolant (thus the engine) is much cooler than it really is. This results in the engine flooding when warm. It may also run rough at idle after warm start since it is still getting too much fuel. You will also notice a massive loss of fuel economy. Replace the coolant temperature sensor.

Chances are its something electrical, but thats a big list.
You'll have to rule out a few things and check for spark and fuel pressure when it won't start.

Car gets warm and starts hesitating on acceleration


Hi,
this could be something in the fuel pump. As the cold motor draws more fuel, it may just be just ok for the engine, but after it is warm, it draws less and may "suffocate" it that way. Same goes for air filter, take a peek if it is not ready for replacement. Has this happened suddenly, or has it occurrend during a long perion of time?
