Hello welcome to just answer I am master tech and will be able to assist you.

this is a common issue in the summer time on older fuel regulators

you have a bad fuel pressure regulator and will need to be replaced.

if this is at acura then they either Don't know what they are doing or a inexperienced tech.

have them look up no start or hot soak on their IN system if will populate a service bulletin for this problem it will want you to replace the PCM and the fuel regulator but in my years doing this and collecting info from this problem the regulator is the only failure not the pcm for mapping as outlined in the S/B
