It is. This only happens when I drive it to like school or to the store. The other day I took it to school. It worked fine when I left my house. When I got to school I parked it and I tried turning it back on and after several tries it didnt work. I think I migh havesmelled fuel. When I got out of school witch was like 4 hours later it started fine. The first time it happened to me was at the store. It also happened to my dad once and I think it started but with jumper cables. I cheked on the technical service bulletin on mitchell on demand and it said:
"wrong ect voltage may cause hot no-start. On all models with PGM-FI, the wrong ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor voltage may cause an intermittent hot no-start without the MIL Coming on. To confirm the problem when the engine wont start check ECT sensor voltage; if its more than 1 V, replace the sensor. At normal coolant temperature, the ECT sensor voltage should be between 0.5 and 0.7 V. If the ECT Sensor sends a cold engine signal (more than 1 volt) to the ECM/PCM at normal coolant temperature, the air/fuel mixture will be too rich, and the engine may not start."
