Default My 2.3 is tempermental

so i got my new clutch for my truck and everything went smooth for about a month and a half. then all the sudden one day it didnt start. then i didnt have any problem for another 2 weeks. then one day i stopped home after school to get my stuff for work and came back out and it wouldnt start. it didnt start until that night when i got home at 9pm. since then it has been tempermental. it doesnt want to start if its above 80 and if it gets below a quarter tank it wont. does any know whats wrong.

bad connection on your starter maybe. my old 2.3 did this but only rarely and not enough for a concern. i would say look at the connections and see.

definitely look at the battery cables! And check your battery voltage reading. What does it say when you try to turn it over?
My 92 ranger was leaking coolant right onto a ground wire and so it got corroded and would loose connectivity at very inconvenient times...

check the clutch pedal switch to make sure it is making the connections it needs, and I agree with checking your continuity from the battery. Look real close at all your connections.
