I think he means he is having trouble starting the car while the engine is hot. It could be due to a leaky injector, resulting in "hot soak." That is similar to "vapor lock" on a car with a carburetor. A leaky injector makes the engine run too rich on startup and can foul the plugs. When it finally fires, do you see a cloud of black smoke? That would indicate a rich mixture. Sounds like a trip to the dealer is in order to have it checked out.
