1996 E300 Diesel doesn't start when hot.

My car doesn't start when hot, I have to wait for 30 minutes to cool off, very annoying when doing small trips like to the market.
Please give suggestions!
Sorry is not 1996, It is 1995

Common problem and it is probably the crankshaft position sensor (KPS) not to be confused with the camshaft position sensor (CPS).
