Default Car won't start if parked in sun all day

I have a '97 Accord Coupe 3.0l V6 with about 56K miles that has been having a problem. If left out in the sun all day, it will not start. Usually I don't drive it to work, but today I did, and inadvertently parked in a very sunny spot. I got to the car at 5 PM to drive home and found it extremely hot inside. Although it cranked very strong, it would not start. I opened the gas cap but there was no pressue built up. I waited half an hour and tried again - no dice. I waited an hour more, until 6:30, and it started with absolutely no problem. I'm not an expert, but it's got to be some sort of fuel delivery problem. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Steve C.

you can also remove main relay and if you are proficient with a soldering iron, resolder all the joints after carefully prying part relay. The components on the relay hardly ever fail but there are a lot of them that have what are called "cold solder joints" and you can fix them yourself with a $10 radio shack iron and $4 solder tube. Better than pay 50-70 from the dealer for that thing.
