My 2003 Saturn Vue won't start if the engine is not cold. In the morning it starts but if I go out and try to drive a few hours later it won't start until I get off work
Without knowing if there are more things happening, noises, clicks, whirr sounds, or even how hard you drive it...
It typically sounds like a bad or clogged fuel filter... Although I've had some cars do this in the past, once they were heated up and had to wait an hour ow two to start again... that generally meant the fuel pump needed to be replaced.
This is called a Vapor Lock... and try as you might, they will not start
So, before you start going through quite a few external sensors, idle air control motors and egr valves and etc, etc at 85 dollars a pop...
Considering changing the FUEL filter and pour a bottle of gas drier in your fuel tank. You could have some condensation in your fuel and it may be as simple as that.
However if this dont help or the problem starts happening again, I would replace the fuel pump.
Good Luck and Happy Motoring
