Asked by May 22, 2015 at 11:25 AM about the 1991 Ford E-250 3 Dr STD Club Wagon Passenger Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I put in a brand new battery. It starts up fine when cold. After I drive it on a long trip it drags like it doesn't want to start. When i let it cool for several hours it starts right up fine.

It must sound like your alternator, is going out you need to get that fix soon.

Actually, the problem may be your starter. A starter can be affected by the heat buildup inside from the hot engine. I'd recommend having the starter checked out and replaced if it's bad.
