    Most likely the culprit is the solenoid on the starter.

    The first thing to determine then is if the problem is fuel, spark or compression. I would make sure the fuel pump is priming when this happens and that you get good spark.

    Most likely it's an ignition problem because that's one of the only things that will fail once heated. This would refer to either a coil or ignition module.
