What size motor is in your truck? I want to make sure I look up the correct wiring diagrams.

6 cylinder

I drove the truck yesterday. It will start when cold, no problem. After it running it for a while, say 30 min. It won't start again until it cools off. If you drive it for about 5 min, it will restart, no problem. It seems as though, after it gets hot, it won't restart until it cools off.

Does it do anything when it doesn't start? Is it just making a clicking noise?
