My 2005 civic will not start if the engine is hot. Been having a little trouble with the temperature gauge shooting up and down, I replaced the rad cap and added antifreeze and the problem stopped. This morning I went to the store and when I came out it wouldn't start immediately. Had to wait about 35-40 minutes and it started right up, seems to be running fine once it starts, no noise, no smells. I'm stumped. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

When it failed to start, you need to ttest what is missing, fuel or ignition sparks. Check for trouble codes. Check the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor.
