The answer is simple grasshopper....
the engine compartment is too hot.... the wires leading from the battery to
the starter, or from the ignition switch to the starter or some where in
that loop are too hot to transmit then necessary juice to turn over the
starter... E.G. when its cold it starts up fine, when its hot ....

I may be wrong, but.. last time I checked wire is cheaper than most

PS had the same problem on my 82 WV rabbit... no one in California could fix
it or even know what the problem was.. when I went off to school at Arizona
State... the mechanic knew right away and fixed it for $40.00  took him 15
