Being carburated I would make sure the choke is fully opened when hot. If the choke is not working properly it will be a hard start hot as it will run too rich and you will have to hold your foot to the floor to get it started.It starts ok cold because the choke will be closed and that is when the engine needs most fuel

Check your plug wires at the plug for spark. Most likely loosing spark. Could come from distributor, cap, rotor, plug wires or coil. If you no spare at the wires, see if it has spark from the coil. Please report back and we will go from there.

    We tried a new starter and a different distributor

    Are you saying the starter is having a hard time spinning the motor when it is warm? If so, your starter may be getting heat soaked. There are heat shields you can put on the starter to help with this.

SOURCE: HEATER DOES NOT STAY HOT IT STARTS THEN IT GOES COLD

Check radiator fluid level. The heater core sets higher than the engine. If fluid gets low, air bubbles will go to the highest point. The heater core. Check temperature guage. Is engine warming up to normal range? If not change the thermostat. Also check radiator cooling fans with engine warm.
On my car if I set the heater control on anything other than "vent" both cooling fans come on and the engine will not warm up. (still haven't figured that one out) I just run the heater in "vent"

If heater warms up when engine is held at high idle(2000rpms) then cools down at idle, you most likely have air traped in the system.

SOURCE: 1991 ford ranger wont start

I do believe the FORD is located under ther hood either on the firewall or on L/S wheel housing. Have encountered many , many faulty control modules. There came a time if you came across a Ford product with a no start, you automatically suspected it, and 90% of the time you were right.

SOURCE: hard to start hot or cold runs good when it starts

I think it may be time to change the spark plugs and wires.

SOURCE: hard start when hot 98 ford windstar with 3.8

Try replacing the fuel filter also Has it had a tune up? they need to have the plugs replaced at 100,000 if the fuel filter does not work then the most probable cause is the fuel pump is losing pressure when hot. The pump warms up and the check valve fails to close all the way allowing a now fuel or fuel starvation.

My 302 Ford is in my ranger and it starts good cold nut when it gets hot it dosent want to start. What is the problem


You have to determine whether the no start is ignition or fuel related. I would suspect ignition. Possible ignition control module getting hot causing problem. Quite common on older non fuel injected vehicles if this is what you have. If fuel injected, it could be a crank sensor of fuel punp issue as well

98 ford ranger turn over hard starts some time


Have you tried taking the serpentine belt off ? You could have a stuck pulley or accessory keeping the crank from turning.
Could be something with the transmission too.

87 ford ranger wont start without starting fluid


It sounds like you aren't getting fuel out of the cold start injector... remove the injector when engine is cold and switch on ignition... you should get a fine spray pattern for a few seconds... if not then there is probably a problem with the cold start circuit (Temp sensor fault), or the injector is faulty. pull electrical connectors one at a time and look for corrosion... Hope this helps...;-)
