Question mystery engine problem, no clue

I have an 04 turbo lite automatic trans.In the mornings(cool weather)the engine starts and the car runs fine.In the afternoon(warm or hot weather)the engine won't start,or will run roughly and die.
The Chrysler dealer had it for a month and has been unable to diagnose the problem. Has anyone encountered this before or have any ideas?
Thanks

First of all IMHO I would never take a seven year old car to a dealership. You'll pay too much. Find a good independent shop. Ask your friends for a recommendation.

When were plugs & wires last done? resistance goes up with temperature.
