I have a 2011 Chevy Cruze 1.8L

It starts fine when the engine is cold, however, after driving for a while then stopping it, it won't start. One day I drove it 25 km, stopped it, then tried to start it again, but when I applied the throttle the engine chokes and dies.

My only guess is the fuel system somewhere - maybe the fuel pump? Do you have any suggestions?

It could be a clogged fuel filter, or a temperature sensor that has failed making the Air/Fuel Ratio too lean for restart on a "hot" engine.
