Hi, if the car runs fine from cold but plays up when the engine is warm then has trouble starting till its cooled down, then the chances are the oxygen sensor(lambda sensor for real name) is on its way out and will need replacing.
the best thing you can do is go and have a diagnostic check done as this will tell you exactly whats wrong as you could spend money on parts that dont need replacing.

if the oxygen sensor comes after the catalytic converter then it could be this thats at fault but without having the error codes read you could just be guessing

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Car running rough after it sits over night


Your Idle Air Control Valve has gotton Carbon Build Up and needs to be cleaned. 75% of the time, you can clean them and they will work immediately but 25% of the time, you have to replace them but the IAC (Idle Air Control Valve) is the same as a CHOKE on older cars... and it is just not adjusting the Fuel/Air Mixture correctly

Ran out of gas and now she won't run!


i would say that you have a bad fuel pump or if you have a carb on it the float inside the carb is stuck check these and i'm sure you will find it's one of these.
