Have the module in the dist checked out. I had the exact same problem for 2 years. And every one had a different reason. Its a bad fuel pump, i promise. Replace the fuel pump and throw on a new fuel filter and it will run great. just make sure you dont buy the cheapest one. I did that and it broke a year later. ive had a new one in for about 4 years now and no more problem. replacing the pump means emptying your gas tank enough to drop the gas tank and remove the top of the tank the pump is right there its a pain in the butt but relatively cheap if you do it yourself. around $60.00 dollars.Good luck

I have a 93 Topaz that had the same issue, and it was an easy fix - the solenoid needed to be replaced. If the problem is the solenoid, the problem may get worse so that the car won't even start when it's cooled down.
