Question type: General

It's a 95 Ford Escort 1.9, starts fine when cold, perfect idle, it runs good. But if you
turn it off when it's warm it won't start right away. It will start after you try for  a few
times, then runs good again.

air to fuel ratio not good, seems to be the spark plugs are'nt converting fuel so all you have to do is change them...

Try starting your car next time holding the gas pedal down like wide open. If the car starts realitively easy; you more than likely have a leaky fuel injector.
