Your post is pretty hard to decipher but it seems like you are saying...

- engine cold = good start
- engine hot = no start?


When the motor is hot and then turned off, then restarted, does it start and stumble on itself? Or nothing?

Sounds like it could be a crank sensor or a cam sensor.

Are you getting a CEL?
