Could be bad compression, with a bad head this problem gets worse with higher temperatures. Hard starting at hot could be a failing ignition coil, does the engine miss under load at hot? It could also be a failed fuel pressure accumulator or fuel check valve. Scrooch under car, find the fuel accumulator ahead of rear wheels on passenger side. Next to the fuel pump (the noisy unit humming along during operation) there is a can with 2 lines going into it. It's smaller than a soup can. If the car has high miles I would just replace the accumulator as it will probably have failed in the 28year old car. If replacing the accumulator doesn't help, replace the check valve on the fuel pump.

Is it normal for a rabbit to have warm ears?

Yes, it's usually normal for rabbits to have warm ears. Rabbits don't sweat: instead, they regulate their body temperature through their ears. When rabbits are hot -- like when the rabbit has been running around and playing -- the hot blood moves to the ears, the heat escapes a bit through the skin, and the rabbit is a little bit cooled down. However, very hot ears could indicate a fever or heat stroke, so consider the circumstances and look for other signs of illness when you notice your rabbit has hot ears. If the rabbit is too hot (fever, heat stroke, etc.), the ears are not enough to cool the rabbit down: the rabbit needs medical attention from a knowledgeable, experienced rabbit vet. See the link and questions below for more info.
