Hi..

this may be because due to high temperature the fuel inside may reached it flash point so gassification may occured.
so no atomisation of fuel may takes which doesnt fire. this may be the reason. as you keep the hood open the ouside air cools it prevents fuel reaching the flash point.try not to keep the car in hot places

if my answer was useful please rate me

Why won't my 95 dodge intrepid start after rain or high moisture?


Probably a bad connection or corrosion at connections in wiring. I would start with the ignition system like a coil pack.

My 1991 780 Bertone Coupe has not been starting when left on the parking lot in the sun. I've replaced 2 starters this summer but it still keeps happening. My mechanic is stumped. The only comm


If the car is in a secure area, raise the hood to vent air from the engine compartment when you park.

The symptoms sound like Vapor lock or a bad coil. Check fuelpump pressure when it acts up again.

If this vehicle has an ignition Relay, or a Fuelpump Relay, they may be affected by heat. Replace those Relays.

I am thinking the starters failed because of extreme cranking usage. Next time you replace one, get a Lifetime gaurantee.

There can be a strenuous condition for a starter when the engine is overadvanced. GM had a problem with its Crankshaft sensors which kept the Cams overadvanced and it fried the starters when the Owners tried to start their motors. But this was not due to heat and occured on cold motors too.

I hope my solution is helpful. Please rate my solution.

'95 Honda Civic EX will not start after cleaning fuel injectors


I would talk to who cleaned the injectors, I don't know if it something they did or not. It could be a stuck open injector. The exhaust would have a raw fuel odor if it was. What it sounds like is a blown headgasket, which can just happen. The exhaust would have a sweet smell to it. Usually starts as a small leak (between cyl. 2 & 3), the engine burns the coolant while driving which you don't see. Then the coolant level gradually drops to a point where the car overheats, which warps the head, causing a large leak. Now you see the coolant burning (white smoke).
Good luck Honda Al

1995 Honda accord does not start when car sit for a while


Check your compression. If you don't have a compression checker, take the plugs out, shoot a squirt of oil in each cylinder, replace plugs and crank engine. If engine starts, you are probably looking at a bad set of rings.
