I had a similar problem with my 2004 Maxima. For over a year, when ever I would get the car hot, then let it sit long enough for it to start to cool down, but not long enough to cool down all the way it would crank but not start, or would start & die after going only a few feet. This was especially frustrating because I could never seem to recreate the problem for my mechanic. After changing numerous sensors and relays & various other potential causes, we eventually came to a malfunction in the chip in the key. I had the dealership reprogram the chip & so far the problem seems to have stopped. It has only been about a week so far, but this seems to have fixed the problem for me.

Vapor sensor

Got a friend of mine told me it is a vapor sensor above the gas tank. You have to drop the tank an it's located somewhere above it. Hope this helps someone...
