Hard to start when at operating temp.

Asked by Aug 28, 2011 at 10:03 PM about the 2002 Ford Taurus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car starts fine when cold. But after it warms up and I stop, say at the store for maybe 10 minutes and try to start it the starter will barely turn over. The temp. gauge shows good and it does not act or smell like it is overheating. New batterie less then a year ago.
Any ideas?
