Could be your Intake Air Temp (IAT) sensor defective in intake manifold....this regulates what DME "thinks" should be cold\hot start..either that or you have a heatsoak problem..

Could be the crank sensor!

take it to a shop, fix it before you blow your starter. Cranking for a while on hot days = premature starter failure.

^Exactly, could also be a weak pump or a clogged fuel filter. Could be many things, but you will cause damage to your starter/kill your battery with the constant cranking.
