Another hot start villain is the fuel pressure accumulator. It works in
concert with the check valve, tightly sealing injectors and the after-run
injector cooling fan to maintain high fuel pressure and, conversely, low
fuel vaporization while the engine hot soaks following shutdown.
Your single-answer mechanic could have been right. But the odds
were against him. Don't get me started on troubleshooting vs.
shooting from the hip.
