1994 Honda Civic Si With Del Sol swap wont start when hot! Help pleasseee!!!!

Asked by Sep 26, 2016 at 01:53 PM about the 1994 Honda Civic EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I just bought this car from my brother-in-
law and it ran fine for about 2 months. well it
has a lot of deletes and is all motor. About 2
weeks ago it started idiling weird when in
neutral. Then it started acting like it didn't
want to crank. Now when I go to try to crank
it in the morning, it fires right up with no
issues and i will let it sit for a bit then it will
start idiling weird. Once I cut it off and wait
about 10 secs it just continues to crank but
it wont fire. I've done a basic tune up and
replaced spark plugs and valve gasket and
all that good stuff and also got a new
distributor. And after I have tried to start it a
second time, I smell gas like its flooded. I
know its getting gas cause I had that
checked. And i also smell something burnt if
you smell almost any of the main electrical
connection areas such as the relay, the new
distributor, and even the fuse panel under
the hood. And btw, the fuses are good to.
But I've paid over 200$ to have it diagnosed
and keep getting different answers....no one
seems to know a damn thing. I really need
some advice!!!! Could it be a relay or what?
I've checked the relay that was under the
steering column and it don't look bad or
burnt. Please someone help!!!!!!
