2000 ford ranger won't start when hot!!

Starts right up no problem. Run it for awhile, especially these last few days of warmer weather , shut it off then it won't restart until it cools down. Temp is running normal all is normal with it. Runs fine. Soon as i shut it off. Boom won't start. Any help would be great. I'm at a loss!

Thanks

Will it turn over? Check for stored codes. If it's turning over, check the fuel pump relay is working, it if's not, make sure it's not your starter.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

No it does not turn over. Just here the relays clicking when you turn the key.

Re: 2000 ford ranger won't start when hot!!

Several possible issues, since it's been running when it does this, things like the range selector switch can probably be ignored for now. I'd look at running voltage and verify you have continuity across the starting relay when it's energized. If you're getting better than 13.5 volts and you're getting a strong signal to the starter, you will probably need to get your starter checked. Since the starting solenoid is integral to the starter, often times, age and heat may make it act sluggish.

Seems to be ok. I checked and the voltage is ok. Still acting up when it's hot. Someone also mentioned the coil pack? Is that a possibility too?

Coil pack shouldn't cause it to not turn over. Can you hear the starter clicking?

You can pull the starter and have it tested at most of the big parts suppliers.

Thanks for your help I appreciate it. I believe that's exactly what I'm going to do. This morning after sitting all night, it won't start. So should be cooled off by now. Lol

Re: 2000 ford ranger won't start when hot!!

Please post back if you figure this issue out. We've got a 2000 also, same problem, except ours started acting up right after a new engine was installed 2 years ago. Sometimes it would get you to town and back, sometimes not. Been towed back to the shop who installed the engine 3 times now and they can't figure it out.
