My 99 Saturn will start cold, but a quick trip to the store, and it won't start

(1999 Saturn SL1)
in Red Oak, TX on May 29, 2012
Why does my car not start after a short trip. Not the battery, starter or alternator. Works fine all winter long. Come summer, after the cold start in the morning, it won't start again..sometimes for hours. Please help!!!!

possible starter is jamming up after getting hot

it sounds like you have a vapor-lock problem. engine heat is the problem. does your car have any leaks? chek the fuel-pump pressure [psi] make sure all injectors have ok fuel pressure. if all is well, then figure out a way to cool down the fuel line, i use aluminum foil and lots of it.. let me know if this helps. razzko99
