Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Buick Regal 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 90,000 miles
The car usually starts fine. I typically have the problem when I have driven the car a short distance and let the car sit in the hot sun for a while (1 hr.). When I try to start the car, it cranks fine but won't start. If it doesn't start on my first attempt, it will not start until I leave it alone for approx. 10 minutes. Then the car will start fine. I have also had the engine quit while driving. This happens infrequently. But when I try to start it immediately, it will not start. Again, I need to let it set for about 10 min. And it will start right up. I am also getting an infrequent " service engine soon" light but I can't tie the indicator light event to the engine not starting. I have changed the fuel pump relay but haven't tried anything else. Thanks for your help!
