Hmm, i'm having a similar issue, the girl is at the shop trying to trace. Check the fuel accumulator - it's the olive green canister looking thing to the front of the engine compartment on the drivers side.

My issue started like this, then i replaced the accumulator and it went away on the cold starts. Now when my engine gets hot it acts almost like a vaporlock situation and won't start. My mech told me to turn key (don't start, but turn all the way) on off about three or four times which will "prime" the system, and the car will start - it worked for me.

Now I think we have it narrowed down to the fuel distributor - one expensive part to replace...

Hope this helps...
