RE: [DML] ERRR!!! Hot Start!!!

I  have a continuing "hot start" like problem.  Replaced accumulator and
fuel distribution unit but that did not help.  Got several points from the
group (some of which I still have to try if I can find the emails).

The unique issue with my problem is if the engine is hot and I stall or kill
the engine I immediately have the hot start like symptom.  An accumulator
problem (which is what I understand to be "the" hot start problem") does not
normally manifest itself immediately.  The car normally has to sit for a few
minutes before the hot start problem occurs if the accumulator is bad.

In any case, my work around is to hold the gas pedal to the floor and it
usually starts right back up with only a modest increase over the normal
start time.  Hotter day are more problematic.  Why this works, I don't know.
It makes no sense to me but it has worked every time for me but once.  It's
worth a try.

BTW, a good battery helps.

Good luck.
