After I drive the car for 20 min or longer and then shut off for about 10 min, it won't start.  It will if I leave it sit for a couple hours.

you need a heat shield for your starter, the silenoid on the starter is getting too hot and then won't function you can either rebuild the starter or get the heat shield to protect the starter.

you dumbass the exhaust is nowhere close to the starter. the car will probably crank but wont start due to a ignition module failure after a hot soak
