You need a new starter. My '92 truck had the same problem. When the brushes inside of old starters get hot, they expand and start shorting to the magnets inside the case. Once it cools down, the brushes contract and break contact with the magnets and allow it to work. Let me know if this helps.

i have had the same thing happen over and over I have a 95 Toyota 3.0 starts fine when cold runs fine till you turn it off when you try to start it it spits and sputters pops I can take water and spray it on the right side of the engine and or put gas in the throttle body and it will fire up everytime the only thing I can think of its doing is vaper locking on the fuel rail then when it condense back to a liquid it will crank up with no problems

but I can tell you this its not a sensor of any type people will tell you that so you will keep spending money on guess work bc they don't know what is wrong with it it make since it will crank up hot but keeps dying but it will idle if you don't push the gas peddle its acting like its running out of gas bc the injectors needs liquid gas to spray it wont spray vapor let it cool off the gas in the fuel rail will condense back to liquid gas if anyone knows how to fix this let me know
