Subject:      Re: Hot Starting Problem

I think it may be a defective part inside the distributor.Either that , or the hall sender on the firewall. Years ago, I had a Ford Fairmont w/200ci 6cyl. The PO said that it would only start when cold. He would start it up and drive straight to work. No 7-11 coffee.So this car was worhtless to him (and toomostother people).Once warmed up ,and if the car was then turned off, he had to wait 2 hours to restart.Happened to me when I first bought it (once at a 7-11).Every time. Turned out to be something down inside the distributor.Forget what it was called.Part of the electronic ignition. The heat caused the problem to occur.Only took about 5 minutes of running to happen.
