Car won't start when its hot outside Sign In

This doesn't happen that often, but often enough to be frustrating. When I try to start up my 92 Civic HB when it is hot outside, it just turns over but doesnt catch. The battery is good.
Im just wondering why the temp outside would affect my car's starting ability. And what might be the bigger problem behind it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you can tell whether this is a spark or fuel problem it would help. This will be hard to figure out if it won't stay broken, T

I dont know if its spark or fuel, mainly because it seems to "fix" itself or at least not stay broken. Was just looking to see if this has happened to anyone else or if the symptoms sound familiar. Any ideas would be helpful.

I have found out by searching around that it is a common problem that is with the Main Relay. Just thought that I would let anyone who is searching around that this is probably the problem

It's going to be tricky. If you want -- try a new relay for the fuel pump which should be inexpensive and is a possibility and you won't know unless it never happens again, T
