Sounds like the ignition control module is bad. When they start to go bad the engine heat will affect them, causing the car not to start when its warm. If you take it out you can have it tested at an auto parts store to see if it is bad.

My thoughts exactly. Plus check the coil packs. Same deal. The coil packs may work perfectly fine until they heat up. Then they brake down and cause problems. If you find one coil pack is bad, replace all three. If one is failing, the others are soon to follow. HTH. - Jim
