Default Start Engine Problem

I have civic 96 and got difficulty to start engine when it is hot, however I got no problem to start when it is cold (after several days off). What might be the problem with my engine?is it because of plug?or starter?Pls advice

sounds like the typical main relay taking a crap. you can either replace it or repair it. to repair it you will have to remove the main relay, take off the black cover and resolder all the joints.

when you remove the main relay its pretty straight foward. there is a black plastic cover over it. remove the cover and you will see all the solder joints. just take a soldering iron and reheat them till they melt and possibly add a little more solder id need be.

Thanks finalImpact, yeah u r correct, it because of main relay, I will get new one or fix it soon. Hope it didnt cost much in Malaysia (left drive). For Civic year 96 (near to 97)Injection, what is the type/code numberfor this relay? I dont want to be played around by mechanic. Is there any idea?
