The car won't start when hot

Asked by Jun 29, 2017 at 01:20 PM about the 2002 Toyota Celica GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello friends! My 02 Celica is having a problem
starting. When it's cold it starts up just fine. But
when it's hot after I let it sit for about 10 minutes, it
tries to turn but it won't start. It will start if I turn it
on immediately after turning it off, but if I let it sit
more than 5 or 10 minutes, it won't start until the
engine cools after a few hours the check engine
light has been on for years and what I checked it
this time it's showing the MAF sensor. I replaced
the MAF and it's still having the same problem.
While it's driving, it runs perfect. My only issue is
trying to start it after it's hot. Any suggestions?
