Car stalls while driving. Able to restart after a short period of waiting.

Sometimes it starts, sometimes it doesn't.

Cannot hear the normal fuel pump startup when turning ignition (if you didn't think about it before, knowing that that is the sound you hear is useful later on :-) ).
My 2001 Acura CL only has 30000 miles. It looks like new. This is the 1st problem with car. Call would not start on a very warm day. Had main fuel pump relay replaced. Seemed to fix problem
if i turn car on and off several times quickly to run into store, get gas, etc. around the third or fourth time, car turns over and dies. After a few minutes it will start back up and be fine. However, twice in the last 2-3 weeks it has stalled while driving 45-50 mph and again, after a few minutes will start back up. Im now nervous every time i drive it!
Started having cranking problems it would crank sometimes and others it won't it has gotten to the point now it won't crank at all
Engine cranks and seems to start for a second, then just cracks without further running.
Seems to happen when car has been sitting in the sun for a few hours.
Car will start when it's cold. If I make a short stop....car only turns over. Have to keep trying or wait until it cools down.
