My 03 impala will not turn over when hot. I turn the key and get nothing. After it sets for a few minutes and cools down starts fine. If I pop the hood it seems to start right away.

sounds like the common starter relay problem.. first thing we do on our chevy cars/hot rod is change them over to a ford relay.. also check that the heat shield is there and set right.. you can also take the solenoid apart, turn the carbon plug around and stretch the spring a little bit..
