I had that problem with my '93 LT1 auto. It was the ignition switch at the bottom of the steering column. Car was fine when cold or not used for a while but a bitch to start if hot or recently driven.

I've had that on at least three occasions where when the fuel pump starts to go bad it will do this. Do yourself a favor and if you can hook up a fuel gauge to your fuel rail located under the hood and visually look at it while your cranking the engine. If it's below 40 psi there's your answer. Also, you say your car is hard to start after it has run a while, could also be ignition system. The next time you run the car for a while, shut it off and pull the fuse on the fuel pump and crank the engine over with a plug out and grounded against a metal object on the car. Ensure that the spark is a big blue deep spark and that your plugs and wires are in good shape. I believe on your model year that the place where the ignition system is located which is down around the harmonic balancer that there were a lot of problems with this. Good Luck

first off, dont pump the pedal when starting. all you are doing is flooding the motor while its trying to start adding to your problem.


is it cranking slowly or stumbling at all when starting?

check the fuel pressure with a pressure tester. there is a schrader valve on the back of the fuel rail

it should be around 41-47 psi when you turn the key to on (not starting)

another thing to look at is your coil. when the ignition control module gets hot, they start to crap out.

the coil is located on the drivers side bolted to the head.
