possible overheating of fuel pump, or fuel pump relay (if equipped). Or possible overheating of other component. Sometimes clogged fuel filter can cause electric fuel pumps to overheat. If you do change the pump MAKE SURE you also replace the filter. also the ignition module (if equipped) sometimes overheats and causes warm start problems. If you are going to troubleshoot this problem yourself, dont skimp, buy the repair manual, mine shows how to test all the sensors, so you dont replace everything you suspect MIGHT be bad.

Could be that the coil (or coil packs) is breaking down and fails when it gets hot and then works again when it has cooled slightly after a few minutes. A good garage would check this easily and quickly especially a main dealer for the car.

There are many things that can cause this to happen. You may have to check all of them to solve your problem. A dirty fuel filter is the most common and the cheapest to repair. You may have a fuel pump going out. You can have dirt stuck in your jet in the carb. You can have vapor lock going on. These are all to do with gas. You may also have jumped time or lost a timing chain or belt.
