Starting problems...

I have problems with my car starting at times. I have yet figured out the problem. Anyways, the car seems to start just fine in the morning or if the engine is cool but if it's real hot outside (like today) I have problems with it starting. When I get this problem my started is working properly, it catches the flywheel everytime. I'm getting spark everytime. My fuel pump is also kicking on properly. A friend told me it was the main relay switch/fuse in some sort. He said it was common on 92 Honda. It doesn't do it alot, just everyone now and then. The only way I can get it to start is to let the car sit 10-15 minutes.... Any suggestions guys and gals?

Re: Starting problems...

Should be directly behind/under the three buttons to the left of the steering wheel (Cruise, Sunroof, Dimmer). There are 3 relays there. The 2 on the left are ABS fail-safe relays, the one to the right of them is the main relay. Hope that helps.
