Ford Taurus will not restart after running over one hour

Help needed with starting problems. 1998 Ford Taurus SE. After driving the car for more than one hour the car will not re-start. I will turn the ignition key and nothing happen, all of the auxiliary electrical equipment will work. After the car cools for an hour it will start and run fine as if nothing was wrong. The battery is newer, and, I‘ve attempted to “play” with the relays. Do you have any ideas?

    A bit of info is needed. To be clear, when you say nothing happens, do you mean that the starter motor does not spin the engine? Do you even hear a clicking noise from the starter relay? Does the engine turn over, but not start? Does the car have an aftermarket anti-theft system in it?

Check the wire harness to the starter solenoid, the wires could have a break in it or the solenoid could also be bad. The heat of the engine could be causing the solenoid to fail till it cools down. Try that first, good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

sounds like your thermostat is stuck open, if its takes a very long time for the engine to warm up and you get nothing but cold air from your heat then thats the first place i would start.

Your Power Steering pump is were the noise comes from, the system fluid must be flushed until it's clean and the PS Pump replaced, around $300 to fix.
