how's your air filter? A clogged up one can affect starting performance.

Go to a mechanic on this one. Hard hot starts aren't usually easy to diagnose. Sorry

This is pretty common with late 80's early 90's honda's. My car is a 1990 honda accord ex and when It got hot, it would not start. Basically, I bought cool air intake ($125-190) and I saw an instant improval. However, from what i'm told, the main problem has to do with the starter (obviously) amd the main intake relay.


What I recommend is telling a specific mechanic that you want the main relay solder in those points shown in the pictures. Hope this helps man
