The past two years I ahve had problems with my 98 kia sephia starting after I take short drives on hot days.....during the colder months I dont have a problem but during the summer after even 5 minute drives the car will need to sit for an hour before it will start again............so if anybody has any suggestions they would be appreciated

thanks

It seems something doesn't like the head. The hondas had a reputation of the ignition module going bad and doing something like that. Now when your car doesn't start, does it crank, if yes then check for fuel, maybe a fuel pump failure (My Willy's used to do it), if it doesn't crank then I will go for the ignition module or the starter selenoid.

thanks for the advice,

the guy at autozone recommended the same thing yesterday but what I decided to try first was cleaning up the battery ground cables and that has seemed to work, so far I have not had the problem again.

so thanks for your help and reply
