Strange ignition problem

Hello everyone, I'm new here. I just bought my very first car yesterday. A 1992 Mustang LX Hatchback. It has a major problem though. When the engine is cold, it starts up just fine. I then drove to my house which was about three miles from where it was bought. I shut off the car, went inside, then came back out to start it up again. No dice. Cranked for about 10 seconds. It wouldn't start up. After waiting for about 4 hours for the car to cool off, it started up. I then took the car to the local mechanic. I got my ignition module replaced. Started up after 4 cranks. Took it home. Shut it off, and tried to restart it, no dice once again. I have been reading that it is possible to have a faulty brand new ignition module, so I have been taking it into consideration. Any other ideas? Thanks in advance!

(p.s. In all this time, the tach was reading while I was cranking the engine.)
