It sounds like you have a failing fuel pump, when they go bad they often work while cold until warm. You can verify this is the problem by doing a fuel pressure test and can barrow a tester from your local parts store. Fuel pressure should be 40-47 psi with key on engine off while vehicle will not start. If it is low replace pump. Let me know if you have questions or need anything. Thanks

This is likely caused by a failing camshaft position sensor.. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks

I read the question too quick and thought you said it runs good just doesnt start up and didnt realize the vehicle does not stall. If vehicle does not stall but will not start when warm the problem is the ignition control module which is Above RH Side Of Front Valve Cover. Sorry about the confusion. Thanks
