    My 2003 Nissan Sentra has trouble starting when it's hot outside.
    It's a little slow when it's cold outside, but really slow when it's hot.
    It sputters a little while and finally starts. Until this morning. Now it won't start at all.

You probly need to replace the hot or even the cold sensor, and while you are at it check the O2 sensor. For a better idea check it out with the computer.

Without the actual trouble code no one can help you. Trouble codes are the starting point. Guessing without the trouble code is a fool's game.

Why does my 1994 honda civic ex not start only when it is hot outside?

My first guess would be the fuel pump relay or the ignition module.
Look for something that gets hot and fails like a relay or electrical part.
When it won't start, check for spark at the plugs and the fuel pressure.

1988 ford escort wont start if is hot outside

A common problem with Fords in hot weather is a weak ignition module. Some are mounted on the side of the dist. The coil can do the same thing.

My car when the sun hit, dont start

Do you mean you have trouble starting it when it is hot outside? If so get the battery checked first, heat and cold stress the battery.

If you mean you lose power as you drive when its hot out, that is a whole other problem.
Good Luck

I just copy/pasted this from another message with much the same problem:

I don't know if your truck uses this method but several vehicles I have owned would turn on the electric cooling fan to combat the natural temperature rise that occurs in the engine once the coolant is not circulating anymore.
This prevents hard starting in a hot engine and if the thermostatic switch fails that controls the fan, the cooling (and turn-on) doesn't happen.
This may be your problem.
