we have replaced fuel filter and fuel injector cleaner but still seem to be having problms. It seems to more of an issue after the car has been sitting out in the hot sun. When i take the car out in the morning from the garage - no problems?

    Have a mechanic check the fuel pressure.Pressure should hold after engine is turned off.
    if not, problem could be fuel spider under intake manifold. Pressure test should show any pump trouble as well.
