Subject: hot start problem

I have had a particular problem with my Saab 900i (1987) for some time now. After running around long enough for the engine to heat up, town driving in particular, if I stop - say at a petrol station - for approx. five mins I then have great difficulty starting again, it either turns the engine without catching or else almost starts and then cuts out. However, leave the car another few minutes and it starts up ok. It feels as if there is just no fuel getting through, but I doubt if this is actuallty the case due to the high pressure in the fuel system. Is there a part of the fuel injection system which causes the fuel mixture to get leaner at high temp? And could this be the problem? Thanks, Donald
