Hi Guys and Gals says it all really, my 2000 Altezza RS200 starts normally when its cold but once it has warmed up, it turns over about 10 times and then starts but only does 100rpm for a few seconds then comes right or i stop and try again straight away and she fires up perfect :confused:

Is this a fuel pump problem or.... Any advice would be greatly appreciated cheers:)

Sounds like vapor lock. Mostly a problem with carburatered cars but hot starting can occur in FI engines if a fuel line is too close to an exhaust manifold or engine. Check to see if fuel line insulation has come off near engine.

Thanks for the quick response! I'll have a look tonight, just so i know exactly what im looking for... I take it the fuel lines are metal? What are they insulated with?
