Warm Start Problems???

Hey all, my car has recently started to give me problems restarting when the engine is warm. It starts when cold perfectly fine, but if I stop for a while and come back to the car with the engine still warm, it will just crank and crank and crank, but never kick over. My first guess would be fuel pump/fuel filter since all the ignition pieces are still relatively new. A worth while guess? If so, which pump would you suggest first???

Oh, and I am puting Pagid pads on my ride in a day or two, I will update you with the results after I have had a chance to bed them in and test them out!

Thanks in advance guys (and girl)

Josh W.

Good point, and sorry for the delay! Stupid work always keepin' me busy n' stuff!

Well, to be perfectly honest, it just fixed itself. I went under the hood, did all the standard stuff... Checked for contact on all Plug Wires, re-torqued the spark plugs in place, checked the Cap n' Rotor, cold start solenoid (I know, this is warm start stuff, but hey, I was already under the hood!) removed, cleaned and replaced the throttle body, physically checked all the fuses and relays... started it right up with no problem, and it hasn't given me any problems since then.

On a side note, the Pagids are GREAT! They DO dust out noticeably, but all I need to do is clean the wheels once a week, and all is good! As for stopping power, my only comparison was the well worn OEM quality pads that I replaced, but if I can fairly compare and contrast between the two, the Pagids would be better at handling fade (not that I do much braking that brings the pads or fluid up to that temperature, but I had to try it!) and with the anti-squeal stuff applied to the backside, they are quiet as can be!

I recommend Pagids highly!
