2005.1 Audi S4 Avant cranks but won't start when engine is hot, starts when cold and runs fine. Can't take it anywhere, afraid I will get stuck.

My car has 120000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. When a car is hard to start when it is warmed up or hot, it’s typically due to a fuel system issue; ranging from a mass air flow sensor that is faulty, clogged fuel injectors or a throttle body that is damaged. It’s also possible that simple items like a fuel or air filter is dirty and needs to be replaced. It’s probably a good idea to have a professional mechanic come to your location to complete a car is hard to start inspection, so they can determine the source of this problem and recommend the right repairs.
