I am more than sure that its the Solenoid Switch..that happen to me long time ago.its about $15. Not expensive.I put two pictures up so you can see how it looks its right next to the battery..

Sounds more like a pickup coil inside the distributor to me. But I've also seen full length headers screw up a starter to but it usually just fries them from my experience.

If Autozone does test it, it won't show the problem due to not being hot.

It could be your ignition control module in the steering column. To find out use a screw drive and jumper the starter seloniod making contact with two large nuts (make sure key is turned to on position) if it starts your ploblem is not seloniod or started but in steering column

It's not likely its the ignition since it only has problems when hot.

I have a 92 lx right now in the driveway that will not start when it's hot I can jump it off with a screw driver and it will start I can also start it on the morning when it's cool out bit as soon as it gets hot it won't even attempt to start

I've seen the ignition module cause the problem (tfi) on the distributor or firewall but not the switch under on the steering column.

Did u invest in some heat wrap for the header or starter. If it was caused by heat it will help some.

the reason i knew my starter was cranking slow by heat was, where my shorty headers bolted to the h pipe had a leak.i fixxed the leak and now it starts when its hot but cranks slow.the headers are pretty close to the starter.

DRod is likely right, in most cases of slow starting either the ground on the starter or the main ground is bad. The sheathing is bad for splitting open and corroding

My leak was leaking right onto the starter.when I fixed the leak it helped tremendously.I agree though that most cases are ground.who knows my ground may be bad also.I was just simply suggesting off a previous experience.
