1990 Honda Accord Question: Intermittent failing to start

My car cranks up fine whenever the engine is cold, but when I drive short distances and turn off the engine, then try to restart it shorty thereafter (ex: When I stop to get gas) the car will turn over, catch and then imminently will act like it stalled out, and then will not re-fire until I have let heat out of the car via opening the hood and turning the heater on. Once I have let it sit like this for a couple minutes, it will start up and run fine. The car has 340+K on it, if that matters. -

Possible ignitor starting to fail. Any recent(3 mo.) repairs or maint.?Poss. flooding due to leaky injector(s), try holding throttle to floor while cranking(DO NOT PUMP) and see if that makes a difference and let us know.........AND NO if it's been well maintained , then 340K aint nuttin!.......10/25/12...Guess it's running or in the scrap yard since no reply. -

Sorry, holding down the throttle when cranking doesn't seem to help the problem. No major recent repairs, it's had this problem for about a year now -
