Your car has a fuel or electrical problem; really could be either. It could be leaking fuel injectors flooding a hot engine. It could be a bad sensor: crankshaft position, cam position, or maybe even the engine coolant temperature. Might even involve ignition components, such as coil or igniter. Without actually seeing the car, it's not possible to say what the exact problem is. Why don't you take the car to a mechanic to diagnose. Or go to an auto parts store to get codes read and they probably won't charge you for this.

Thanks for the suggestion. I did a code run for my car. Engine number is Z14XE, here are the codes i got: P0530, P0400, P1230, P1616, P1481, P1483, P0115 any help on what should be the next step or what causes this warm start problem?


That's a LOT of codes to show up at once. Google each to see the are of each problem. Whit that many problems, you're going to need a mechanic; especially for the P1616 for the body controller and PCM.
