The car not starting when warm can be a sign of a low charge in your battery. If it is more than 18 months old (usual warranty period), it could need replacement, since some of the cells are no longer functioning.

Warm starting gasoline engines sometimes needs a higher charge to start it up.

Hope this helps.

I have a 1988 chevy cavalair station wagon that runs fine until it gets warmed up than you stop at red light it shuts off it starts right back up again until put in gear than it turns off again

I have to ask, how long since a tune-up? Can you check for applicable trouble codes, if there are any?
Maybe it runs ok in open loop, open loop doesn't use the 02 signal until it warms up? Closed loop dies use the 02 signal. Changing the 02 sensor is part of a tune-up.
With idle issues, clean the throttle body and any small idle air passages. Check and clean the idle air valve. Check anything that has to do with air flow.

1997 chey lumina runs fine until motor warm-up then shut off and won't start until motor cool off

Try getting your transmission solenoid replaced. After I got mine replaced it ran fine after that. That's the exact same thing my Lumina was doing.

Hello, Car will start until warm then shut off then won't start again until cool then same thing happens over again

As with any no start issue you will need to figure out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel problem to proceed. Check the plugs for spark and the fuel pressure the next time it will not start.
Could be a faulty relay, ignition module, coil or other electrical component.
Let us know what you find.

I have a 86 camaro 2.8L run good till it gets warm then die's won't start again till it cools. getting fuel and spark.

I have a 1985 Camaro and if the switch for the fan is off then it overheats. There is a fan that can be installed. My switch is on the left of my steering wheel. Tune up is always good. Have your alternator checked, if it's old can be a problem maybe. New spark plugs can't go wrong. Good Luck!!!

Ford taurus 2001 car start but once the car is cut off it won't start up again until it cools off the car is not running hot.

After you kill it, when you try to start it back up, does the starter turn the motor? Or is it froze up (will not turn over)?

Difficult to start again after warm up engine.

give the engine a minute or two to cool down before turning it off. This cool down period allows oil to circulate and cool down the bearings in the turbo. If you shut off the engine immediately after hard driving, the oil can gum up around the hot bearings and create problems down the road.
Hope this helps

Thanks for using Fixya
Have a nice day!
