If you have a hard time starting a warmed up engine, there may be a problem with the residual fuel pressure. It is important that when you turn off a warmed up engine the fuel system retains a certain amount of fuel pressure, if it doesn't you will have a hard time starting the car. Have the fuel pressure checked, especially the residual pressure after the engine is hot. If the pressure drops after shutting off the engine, you will need to find out why. This can be from a leaking fuel injector or a bad check valve (which is often in the fuel pump) -

Replaced old Autolite w/ Motorcraft gapped at .054, then replaced fuel filter{ Old 1 was harder to blow thru than new "Wix" replacement. Sprayed " Seafoam" down warm intake,{It says it wil clean carbon build up if you let it set 5 min. Done all of that, dont know how it will do if it gets hot, but storms outta the hole when cold. -
