Question 2001 mitshubish galant will not start when its warm or hot

2001 mitshubish galant will not start when its warm ...will only start when its cold....and when we try to start when its warm/hot it will start and in couple of seconds it will stall and same thing again..until we wait like an hour or something ...than it will start again...

Also we have coupe of codes one is P0441 and P0340 ...

do you think faulty camshaft sensor can cause this or faulty ignition coil? or faulty starter? or heat soaked starter?

The code P0441 is for Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow. Check these things in your galant; gas cap, purge solenoid, EGR solenoid, fuel vapor canister filter, fuel vapor check valve and all the hoses.You need to check the hoses (filler neck) really careful ,also the voltage at each solenoid/valve should be 12 volts with the key on,if it still has a check engine light coming on, then, it is time to get a smoke test done to determine where the leak is. Also on a scan tool you can excite the valves to see if the circuits are working. If the car has sat overnight or when the temp of the car is below 75 degrees to do the tests of the evap system.

The code P0340 is for the camshaft position sensor. These sensors commonly go bad and result in no start condition. The most likely cause is the sensor itself. You need to replace it.
