Default Crank truck, get up to temp, turn off, will not crank till it sits for a while

I can crank my truck up, run to town and get the temperature up come back home turn it off and it will not crank back up unless I let it sit. It acts like it's not getting any gas when I do try to Crank It Up the second time after I've let it sit it acts like it's like it's trying to come on but it's just not getting gas for some reason. So if anyone has any ideas that can help it would be very much appreciated. It's an 01 Ford Ranger Edge.

You can check the inertia switch and connector (passenger side Kick panel), known problems with them getting hot and quitting until it cools.

I would also check the fuel pressure itself and the regulator, you're looking for fuel coming out the top and bleeding into the vacuum line thus flooding the engine.

I also noticed that it has a harder problem starting when it's on an uphill incline.

The above checks will rule out the obvious. Ultimately it may come down to a failing Fuel pump or fuel pump relay. The short of it, can you recall when you slowly turn the key forward, door closed, if you hear the fuel pump prime?

Its a short 1-2 second whirrrrring noise. If you dont get that right away each time you turn the key forward, that could indicate a bad relay or pump too. Relay would act much like the inertia switching issue.

I will look at those and let you know, btw do you know what the torque bit size is for the bolts in the bed of the truck?

Should be either a T50 or T55 if I recall. I don't think it was a T60. You can get a socket version for $4-6 at Autistic Zone or Ohreally's, they'll even let you walk out to check most times before buying.

I'd check mine for you to be sure But I myself have a body lift so the bolts get swapped in favor of some longer Grade 8 bolts and they have a regular hex head on them now... not much good for verification. lol
