Hard to start when engine is hot.
My car is hard to start when it is HOT. Like if I drive around for a while and then I gas up or just stop and shut the engine off then go back after a few minutes and restart the engine then it is so hard to start. It acts as if the Fuel Pump relay is pulled out of the fuse box at the back. Starts then goes up to 400rpm then dies, then restart then try again and dies. Then after like 5 minutes of trying. It fires right up and won't die again after it starts ok. Even if you drive for an hour or two it won't die. But if you restart the engine again then there it goes again.
Only happens when engine is hot.
The thing is, it only started happening when I didn't use the car for a week and learned when I tried to start it when I got back home, that the battery was dead. I pulled off the battery and brought it with me to the shop where I'll be buying the new battery. Took me 3 hours and I installed the new battery. Then this thing started happening.
Any ideas please? Try pulling off your fuel pump relay and starting your car that's how the car reacts when i experience this hard starting thing when engine is hot.
