Hi Francis ... You didn't say the magic word ... Warped head. Did you have the integrity of the head checked. Even one moderately severe overheating can warp it fairly easily. Have the head checked out before you spend another cent on it. Good luck!

I have replaced head gasket and had heads done. The car starts fine when it is cold but when it is warm it does not want to start. Let it cool down 15-20 minutes and it started. When you first turn the key when warmed up it sound like it wants to start but then just turns over.

I had a friend with a car that did the same thing. It was his starter. Dont know all your details, but maybe you have the same problem??
