Default 90 Honda Civic won't immediately restart after shutdown?

I drive a 90 Honda Civic. If I drive about 5 or ten miles and then turn off the vehicle, it won't start up until about10 or so minutes. I was wondering what the fix for this is, what part I need or need to replace.

The problem could be with the spring loaded check valve in the fuel line that maintains pressure in the line when you stop. When this valve wears out, the pressure in the fuel line goes down rapidly when you stop, making it hard to restart. Replace the valve.

It is the main relay, located being the coin pocket. The solder cracks over time and needs resoldering, so don't buy a new one, just re-solder it.
