I think that's the ignition sensor, Ron.  But those sensors are such a pain
to replace and they both tend to have the same lifespan, according to
numerous postings I've read, so I just switched out both of them.  I found
when the hot start problem began, I could shorten the "cooldown" time to
get a restart by opening the hood.   The other sensor reportedly isn't
available anymore, but they're identical except for the color of the
plastic covers.  I think the ignition sensor is the gray one and the engine
sensor is the black one.  I taped the one I connected to the engine sensor
wiring harness with some black electrical tape.
