    car was hard to start when hot. found temperature sensor faulty and not sending proper temperature to computer. replaced temperature sensor. i also found out that this could be a fuel pump or fuel check valve issue and there is a software update that can reprogram your computer for this problem. also i find what helps if you turn the switch to on and wait 3 seconds (listen for fuel pump to run its cycle to pump pressure up) then start seems to help.
