Unhappy 89 CRX won't start when warm

My 89 CRX HF starts great when the car is cool. Once I drive and turn off the engine, I have to wait until engine cools. Typically, it is about 30 minutes or so. When engine is warm, the start will turn over the engine, but the engine won't start. I think it would be related to some cold start mechanism??? I did notice that when it got hot outside, I have problems with starting as well one time. It has not been too hot recently, so I can't confirm for sure about the correlation between the outside temperature and the starting problem. One thing is for sure, after driving the car, the car won't start until the engine cools off. Help!

My guess is a bad fuel pump relay or a bad igniter in the distributor.

I would think the ignitor as well.

Back in '94, Honda had a recall on them and mine was replaced at n/c on my CRX Si.
