Question about 2004 Ford Econoline
Engine will not turn over when hot. if it is the starter relay, what is its location in the vehicle?
I'll assume this is something like an E-150 with a gas engine. If the engine cranks over normally when cold but then cranks very slowly once the engine is fully warmed up then you most likely have a failing starter. What happens is that when the windings get hot they aren't able to produce enough power to properly spin the starter. Once the windings cool off they work better and the engine will crank normally or nearly normally. If it doesn't make any attempt to crank at all then you could have a bad solenoid which is located at the right front of the engine compartment. I have tested these solenoids by cooling them off when the problem is happening to see if they then start to work again. Fairly rare for these solenoids to fail but they can. I see a lot more starter problems however. Good luck, hope this helps!
