Post Camaro Doesn't like to start

I recently purchased a camro from a buddy of mine for only 900 bucks. its a pretty good car all in all but it doesnt like to start all the time. If its really hot out it tends not to start, and the enegine gets very hot if you run it for long periods of time. One day when it was about 100 degrees out it would start at all for about 4 hours. this is my first car and im new to all this, i dont really have much of an idea as to what is causing this. <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

its a 3rd generation camaro,and its fuel injected. Im not sure of the exact milage. it does leak oil and transmission fluid, it may have some blown seals or gaskets. i havent had it long enough to really look yet.i dont know if that could have anything to do with it.

Make sure you battery cables are supper clean and bright. At both ends, At the battrery and where they hook to the starter as well as where the neg hooks to the frame. Receintly i had a constant clicking nose. the truck was hard to start, and would grind down the battery . I traced it to a loose groung strap at the engine, no more clicking no more hard starts.In addition make sure you groung the engine to the frame as well.
