Car Wont Start When I'ts Hot Outside!! Help!

so my car wont start when it is really hot outside and the sun has been beating down on it. In the morning and at night it starts up fine and runs like a champ. I really don't know whats wrong with it so if you guys have any ideas I would really appreciate it

Re: Car Wont Start When I'ts Hot Outside!! Help!

so i looked up the service manual for my prelude to figure out where the main relay is and i think i know where it is but im not too sure. Is it on the drivers side below the dash? or am i mistaken?
