I don't know if your truck uses this method but several vehicles I have owned would turn on the electric cooling fan to combat the natural temperature rise that occurs in the engine once the coolant is not circulating anymore.
This prevents hard starting in a hot engine and if the thermostatic switch fails that controls the fan, the cooling (and turn-on) doesn't happen.
This may be your problem.

My Toyota Tacoma 98 is making an odd pumping sound. Almost like there is a fluid empty or it's straining to move a fluid. This sounds comes at random times and doesn't stop when I drop the truck into...


Does your vehicle have an electric fuel pump? If it does, check to see if the filter is clogged. Also, you can remove the "out" side hose, turn on the ignition to check if it pumps fuel.

1999 toyota tacoma Sr5 won't start


Check for fuel pressure when starting. Fuel pumps have a check valve in them that keep fuel in the rail at the injectors. If the check valve fails, the pump has to pump fuel all of the way up to the engine. Same thing with hot no-restarts. Fuel pump.
