Yes! I totally forgot about that one.

With the engine OFF and cold, find the fuel pressure regulator, a little round canister attached to the fuel rail on the intake manifold with a vacuum line on it. Pull the vacuum line off. If it pees gasoline at you from the vacuum port (it won't be a high-pressure blast, but keep a shop rag handy), it'* leaking. Symptoms of this are normal cold starts, but very difficult warm restarts, as you described.

nope, not necessarily. because that leak is in a vacuum line, there'* a good chance it would never get to the ground.

but if it did, gasoline evaporates pretty quickly, and you still probably wouldn't see it.

Right. It'* leaking into a vacuum line, which snorks it right up; nothing leaks to the outside. I had this problem on my '96 Trans Sport a while back.

Yes, any leaks on top of the engine can boil off real quick. (If it was leaking to the outside, you might smell it, though.)
