My thought at present time - replacing coolant temp sensor did not correct the issue.

My next replacement is - replace ignition module.

My truck has the relocation kit but I will replace the module anyway.

Any thoughts?

!Help!

I see a wide range of cost for the ignition module - from $16.00 to over $200.00.

What should I do - not looking to break the bank or pay over $200.00 if it is not needed.

Plus I do not want to create any more headaches with a sh** part.

Borrow one ... and see if it makes a difference.

If it doesn't then you don't need to replace yours.

No access to a loaner/one to barrow.

Is there a cross reference on a cheap one that can be had at AutoZone or the likes of?

Sorry for the sllllooow reply to this thread.

Wanted to give a bit of time - test in warm weather and test in cool to cold weather.

Still have the same issue - when truck is cold - truck starts right up - starts on the first crank.

I can have the truck sit for weeks - truck starts on the first crank - in cold to hot weather.

If weather is cool to cold and I drive the truck - stop and go by means of turning truck off then back on - no issues.

If weather is warm to hot - truck struggles to crank after it's warmed up and stop and go by means of turning off and then back on - truck struggles to crank and in some cases it needs to sit to cool off for it to crank.

HELP!?!

couple of things to look at..

1) timing should be set within reasonable factory limits - the manual calls for 5 degrees, last one i checked was at 20 degrees advanced which was way too much...

2) hot start issues can be also caused by an over heating starter.. so check the cables to it from the battery, make sure your not blowing exhaust on to it, and that its secured in there..

since it only does this when cold, this leads me to lean to overheating starter scenario as the primary culprit.

but could also be other electrical stuff... the chicklet, the ignition module, etc.

Weldon- Did your new starter fix this for you? and when replacing - did you install a new heat shield?

I have a '95 4.2L that is doing this to me at the moment as well.
