ENGINE WON'T START HOT

1990 Mercury Tracer

Engine Performance problem

My 1990 Sable won't turn over after short trips and is worse in warm weather. It always happens after the engine is hot. I have to sit and wait awhile before it will start. I know it isn't ready to start if I don't hear the fuel pump engage. After sitting, it eventually starts. Is the fuel pump going? This has been an on going issue for 2 years. Btw, thanks to jgarofalo and rasmataz for info supplied in my earlier posts. While I haven't had a chance to get a new/used blend door motor unit yet, I was able to locate a used alternator at a local wrecking yard and now everything is peachy. (Except for the engine issue, haha)
