Vapor lock? Does that problem even exist in today'* cars??

On a different note, I'm going to put my guess on a failing coil. However, if a tuneup is in order due to mileage, I'd suggest that first. Have fun with those rear plugs :P

EDIT: I have GOT to stop posting in the lounge. I've been at 299 posts for four days now.

I was under the impression that no longer happened due to newer technologies in cars and gasoline... or at least not very often anymore.
