    Someone wrote that jiggling the key in the ignition works--but I can't find the link. We'll try this next time and see what happens.

I suggest running it by a shop on a hot day. It would be much easier for them to find the problem if they can get the car when it is acting up.

Engine start delay once the relay is hot

It should not be getting that hot, you are getting feedback into that Relay for some reason and you need to find out why? But first try replacing the Relay with a new one. There is a good change that the Feedback is Internal of the Relay. (VW has this problem on their 90's Models.

Fuel problems

It is quite possible that your fuel gets cut off when the engien gets hot. So when the fault occurs- or let it idle for over 30 minutes to find it stalling - then check for the fuel filter block, fuel pump failure of the diaphragm. It will be better to replace and test once you find that the fuel flow reduces on heating of the pump. If not please check your HT coils for failure at higher operating temp. touch on the coils to see if it is hot.In such case the insulation would be low and needs an replacement as it fails to deliverr high temsion voltage. Hope this helps. Good day

You may either have a weak battery or the starter going out. Do a load test on the battery when it is hot.
Heat causes higher ressistance in all electrical circiuts the engine heat may be causing just enough for the battery to fail.

After driving for 25-30 minutes, the car won't start for about 3 hours

Any chance you've got 'Titanium' spark plugs. We had this same issue, and found it was caused by a mechanic replacing our plugs with the titanium ones. If they were hot, they didn't ignite properly during startup. If you let the car cool, it would start right up (~2 hours). Changing the plugs for good quality old-style plugs and the problem hasn't occurred since.

Car cranks just fine but will not start, tried cold start fuel, but didn't help. it actually starts once a day usually in the morning but that's it.

These cars have a problem with the main relay. They quit working when they get hot. This explains why your car will start when it is cold. Check out some of the other posts about this problem, also the Honda Civic.
