Ask Smithy Xtra Matiz stalls when it's hot

My 1999 Daewoo Matiz is stalling only in hotter weather, but is fine when weather is cool. It has had a diagnostic check by Daewoo, but nothing showed up. Any ideas?

I assume it’s stalling on start-up and not stalling once it’s up and going. I would be checking the cold enrichment system, which seems fine in cold conditions, but not doing the job on warmer days.
