HARD TO START AFTER SITTING IN A HO

1989 Nissan 180SX

Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Nissan 180SX 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 160000 miles

My Nissan 180sx does not start easily after sitting in a hot sun for many hours.

I have no problem to start it up in the cold morning.

When I get to work, I park my car outside my work under the hot sun.

When I finish my work at 5pm, it is very hard to start up.

Normally I need to crank it for 6 to 8 times to get it started. What would be the main cause of it?

Thanks.

Check the fuel pressure could be the fuel pump that's acting up and get back with some results, could also be the ignition switch.

Before I go to get the fuel pump checked, I am just wondering why I don' have any problem to start my car in the cold morning, after parking in my garage for more than 12 hours overnight? Would that be something small that I can fix it myself?

Thanks again

Its really hard to tell where its coming from unless you duplicate the problem and attempt to do what I've suggested there's more to it than what I gave earlier that was to eliminate the fuel out of the way then I'll take it somewhere.
