Basically it starts from cold and runs absolutely fine, but it won't restart when the engine is already hot. The car has been sat on the drive under a cover but I'm thinking maybe some engine sensors have gotten damp? Any idea where to start? Also, when it won't start I can't hear the fuel pump prime. As soon as it's cooled down it'll start again and run up to temperature. It does not cut out, but once I've switch it off that's when it won't start again.
