I have a 1987 f-150 ford and it high idles at 2500 to 3000 rpm what can cause this problem. this truck has a 5.0 in it.

Check the throttle cable for binding and the engine for vacuum leaks.
You may have a stuck idle air control solenoid.
It is hard to say what it might be. Start running some tests and it will help narrow your search.

Car starts hard when hot after sitting half hour,but once started will start over and over.problem is it sitting a little while.

When sitting most likely your getting some fuel down into the cylinders - this is very common on high performance cars. When it sets the fuel build up pressure in the engine.

The easy fast fix is a high performance starter -or even a race mini starter.

You probably need a tune up or timing might have been changed which would alter the rpms. Replacing the module can erquire moving the distridutor and it may not have been returned to the same position. I have experienced same problem.
