it TRIES to turn over thats about it it turns over real slow but soon as the motor cools down it starts fine. I have had suggestions from starter to bad timing? im lost

i havent checked the timing yet because i personal have never seen a car do this only when it gets hot if the timing is off. everyone i have seen turn over slow because of timing being off does it ALL the time not just when it gets hot

Make you a List to check if your lost.

1) Check Timing
2) Check Coolant Temp Sensor
3) Check Crank Sensor if you have one.

If none of the above work lets us know and we can try out best to keep moving foward. When you get in your truck in the morning does it crank fine like nothing is wrong???

it cranks fine as long as the engine is cold. the engine heats up it will barely turn over

yeah, i wouldn't think it would be timing either since like you said, it only does it when it's hot. and by "hot" you don't actually mean "hot" you mean warm/normal operating temperature right? seems like somebody else was having issues a few months ago and it was something with the coolant temp sensor and a couple guys have already mentioned it. you got a check engine light?

by hot i mean normal operating temp. yea i got a check engine light but its not on. the truck just didnt start this it has done it since i have had it. if the coolant temp sensor was going bad wouldnt it cause the gauge not to work? mine works fine
