It sounds to me like you have something binding up or building resistance due to heat. I have had a similar thing happen to me with different cars. It turned out to be a battery cable that was fine when cold, but when it warmed up, it would sag and touch against an exhaust pipe just enough so that when I went to start the vehicle, it would arc to the exhaust and lose battery power that was normally used for starting it. Another time it turned out to be the negative cable not making good enough contact. The Ford 300, 6cyl. engine is a very good solid dependable unit, but ford has always had quite long battery cables and issues with the way the were grounded. I would check my cables and maybe replace them for good measure. Also be certain that your negative cable is very solidly grounded to the block of the engine.

If i need alternater

Do you have an aftermarket stereo system? these cause a tremendous strain on your alternator which may be the problem. Check all connections to alternator, battery, and ground cables. the alternator will provide enough power to run your vehicle if it is working properly. If it is faulty, it will drain your battery. take it to an auto parts store to be tested before purchasing a new one, because it could be as simple as a loose or corroded wire

My car wont start and i already put a new batterie and a new starter what else could be the problem?

With this tiny bit of info, it is really hard to tell. Will it fire? Will it even turn over? Is it getting fuel? Are the plugs in good shape? Are the plug wires in good shape? I would change the plugs, the plug wires, check to make sure your fuel pump is functioning, and change your fuel filter. Also, if you have an old style cap and rotor distributor, check the copper points. If they are corroded, you need to clean them. If you have a distributor block, you might need to replace a coil. Also, on late model Toyotas, inside the distributor cap, there is an ignition coil. My Toyota Camry 1992 died driving down the road. I changed the ignition coil and had to rotate the distributor cap and it finally started. All things mentioned could be the culprit. Trial and error, I'm afraid, is the best way to go. Start with the cheapest stuff and then progress forward.

I have 1990 F 250 4x4 and i switched out the battery and its still hard to start what might I do to solve this hard start problem.

Clean battery cables and maybe have starter tested. Starters as they age drag and draw more amps. (If that was what you were ref to hard starting) You might do a complete tune up - plugs, wits all filters and fluids & run a good fuel system cleaner through it. That would give you a good "ground zero" starting point.

With new Battery and Starter, and still drags -
Check ALL connections and cables for corrosion. That includes the BATTERY to GROUND connection. Make sure the Cables themseleves are not corroded. Sometimes corrosion builds up inside the cable.

1993 cadillac won't start

Sorry if im misunderstanding this, but im guessing you meant "just wont turn over." If this is the case and you have a good alternator and battery, it sounds like the starter if it is infact trying to turn over. Brushes in the starter motor wear out and cause it to drag hard making it seem like you have a low battery. Hope this helps.

Starter drags???

it sounds like the new starter is faulty , I would suggest having it checked by a service shop or a starter rebuild shop, most parts supply stores dont charge for this test but you will have to remove the starter from the truck.
