Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor. The one that tells the ECU what the engine temp is. That's what it sounds like to me. If it isn't bad, it soon will be. A $25 part. Get a real Bosch one, not aftermarket from the auto store. When these fail, they are intermittent and often show up during warm engine conditions. If the car is easy to start after it has cooled down for half an hour, then that's what it is.
