2002 Infiniti I35 Question: Engine won't start when the car is warm

 

Question

For several months I've noticed that the engine is more difficult to start when warm. Today it wouldn't start, I had to wait about ten minutes after my errand was over to drive away. From my research it looks like it might be the fuel pump--does this make sense? How soon should I take it in? Can it cause future and more expensive problems if I don't deal with it soon?

    First and foremost, start with a decent Diagnosis. You most likely have a Check Engine Light on yes?

    the codes are to help you figure out what is wrong. try them first, a fuel pump problem would not change when the car was hot or cold, generally
