[DML] Do I have the "hot start" problem?



My car will start flawlessy when cold and runs very smoothly for the 
first run  of the day.  However, after about 20 minutes to an hour 
after this first run, I have trouble starting it.  It will crank and 
crank for a few minutes before it fires.  Once I get it started, it 
runs a little rough.  It will also start right up again if I run into 
a store for a couple of minutes - it fires right back up.  It's just 
this magic time after about 20 minutes while the engine is still warm. 
Is this the classic hot start issue?  If so, is it usually the fuel 
accumulator?  I hear this is diffcult to change.  Are there good step 
by step instructions posted for replacing this?  Also, is there a 
possibility that there's a problem with the fuel pump?  Any help or 
advice is appreciated.

Thanks,

Paul,
