Default why wont my 98 civic lx start after the car has been running for a while?

car has been very tempermental on starting after it has been running for a while if you drive a few miles and let the car get hot it will start back up immediatley however once it sits for a little bit it will not start. After sitting for several hours or overnight the car fires right up. Its runs great while running. im at a loss here not sure what else to do.

distributor, plugs, wires, fuel filter all new could this be caused by a bad temp sensor flooding the motor?

It's a P.O.S. Honda. Get a real car! You probabaly have a cold air intake and a loud annoying muffler installed that sounds like a weed eater!

Now that I have that out.. Check your temps and your fuel... also chek your catylitic converter may be geting clogged.. Could be your distributer.!

Don't take guesses at what is wrong. Take it to have a scan done on your car. It will tell you exactly what is wrong.
