This may be a problem with "fuel vapor lock". This occurs only when you try to start a warm engine, which sounds like your issue. The fuel system should retain some fuel pressure when the engine is hot and turned off, if not the fuel will turn from a liquid into a vapor, and the fuel pump cannot pump vapors, only liguid.
Have someone check the fuel pressure and the "rest" pressure.

if the check engine light is on and there's no codes stored, you have a bad computer. That is provided you know for a fact that there's no codes stored and not being misled by someone that doesn't know what they're doing.
