Default 1991 Camry won't start warm

I have a 1991 Camry (4cyl) with about 130,000 miles. Overall it runs
great, however occassionally when my wife has been driven it for a
while and decideds to run into a store when she comes back out the car
won't crank over. She ends up having to wait for about 30 minutes for
the engine to cool before the vehicle will start up.

So far I have replaced the following:

Starter
Ignition switch
Main EFI relay

The car always starts right up when the engine is coldI have a 1991
Camry (4cyl) with about 130,000 miles. Overall it runs great, however
occasionally when my wife has been driven it for a while and decides to
run into a store when she comes back out the car won't crank over. It
seems like no power is making it to the starter. She ends up having
to wait for about 30 minutes for the engine to cool before the vehicle
will start up. Once the engine has cooled it starts right up
everytime.

So far I have replaced the following:

Starter
Ignition switch
Main EFI relay

The car always starts right up when the engine is cold. If anyone has
any ideas I would be glad to hear them. I am thinking of replacing the
Coolant Temperature Sensor, does anybody have any thoughts on how
effective this might be?

Thanks in advanced,

A possible neutral safety switch problem.

Ask someone who knows if this system has a coolant temperature sensor. The
ECM may be reading bad coolant temp data and trying to start a warm engine
as if it was cold.

No experience here with Toyota, but I have seen this with other Japanese
makes.

Good luck.

I may have misread your discription of the symptoms as someone tried to
point out in another post. Does the starter roll over, or does the input
from the key simply give you a click, or no response at all.

The usual symptoms of bad input from the coolant temp sensor will be a
starter that rolls normally or faster than usual, but the car acts (and may
even smell) flooded.

Whoops! My bad

I will bet you put in a rebuilt starter and that is your problem, once I
went through 3, then got my money back and bought a new OEM unit

Could it be the "Ignition Control Module"? Does anybody have
experience with these failing?

Thanks,
