Red face Hot from sun, my Renault Megane won't turn over

Hi everyone, I live in hot Queensland Australia, My beautiful Megane gets hot from the sun and won't turn over. Ive learnt how to take it out of gear (automatic) when not running, rocking it, letting fumes out of the tank, rocking it more. Then she starts. I'm guessing it could be the sensor for the fuel tank, as she runs beautiful when going. Could I be right and if so, How can I fix this. Gets pretty embarrassing being seen bouncing up and down on my car in the car park. Thanks Sarah.

Sorry, I can just picture that.

Just a shot in the dark here, if you remove & replace the fuel cap complexity prior to attempting to start her up, will it start then?

BTW don't ever change, I love your style
