Default truck has some trouble starting when engine is warm

alright i finally decided to join this site even though ive been on here many times.
here is my problem, ive got a 04 ranger, in the mornings when its cold out it will start right up with no problem, rpms are at about 2000 then go down to about 1000 in a few min, i guess thats normal. well ill drive it to the store or something and after about 15 min. when i try to start it up it struggles. i have to press the gas peddle to get it started fully. it only does it after its been drivin the same day. sometimes it does it and sometimes it doesnt. im not very mechanically inclined but i was thinking it might just need a tune up. if anybody has any knowledge of this that would be great. thanks.
p.s my clutch and gas peddle squeak a little bit and it is annoying, would wd 40 work?

Default Ignition Module

I ran into a similar problem with my '95 XLT, primarily during the hot Texas summer. I got a suggestion that the IGNITION MODULE might be the problem. If you can find it, try hitting it with a hair dryer for a few minutes when the engine is cold. If it then doesn't start, the module may be your problem.
