Q: Car woun't start when hot on 2001 Mazda 626

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
During the warmer days, I have to wait at least 2 hours for my engine to cool down before I can start it. The temperature gauge is right where it's suppose to be and it never went to HOT. When I try to start my car after it has been driven for lets say for like 20-30 mins, it starts, get to 1RPM and than it dies. If been trying to find out the problem couple of weeks and no answer. By the way the Check Engine light is off! Any suggestions or answers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

next time it does this, put your foot to the floor when starting. this puts the engine into "clear flood mode" it significantly reduces the amount of fuel going into the engine. if this helps, then you have leaky fuel injectors. if not, most likly fuel pump mite be getting weak.
