1986 toyota pickup - sometimes, not often during the summer, after driving a while, it will not start until it cools down. I do experience radiator fluid leak, but do not know where.

You can run some dye in the coolant to find the leak, and or after the truck is warmed up open the hood and get under the vehicle to look for the leak. Not sure why it isn't starting while hot.
