Exclamation Hot outside? Won't start.

Well now.... How do I start? HELP!!!
I have a 1993 Honda Civic EX 1.6L. Ran fine for a while, but then stopped starting when the temp outside was above 60. I was initially told by a mechanic that it was the distributor...and that it would cost $600 to replace. So I happily did it for $200 myself in 15 minutes. It then ran fine again, after I replaced the battery, for about two weeks, then back to the same old same old. I went to get a diagnostic tester, but can't find one sold for this year. Here's a short run down

New battery- one week old
New distributor (rebuilt that is)- two months old
New fuel filter-three months old
Starts quickly when cold
Won't start at all when it's warm outside
Engine light is off

Fuel pump
fuel relay
fuel screen
carburetor: vacuum controlled secondary

Any solid ideas are more than welcome.
