Icon5 Will not start in hot weather?

Hi all,
Glad to find this forum, hope someone can help. My 1994 Ranger runs great until recently with the hot weather, it will not start.
This only happens in the heat of the day, say above 85 F. If I wait until the outside temp drops it will start up fine.
Anyone else have this problem?

Re: your hot start problem with your Ranger, did you ever figure out what the problem was...(?). I've got the same issue, the truck starts fine. I can run a couple of errands and after it gets real hot (or it's hot / humid weather), once I shut it off, it won't start nomatter what. I have been stranded a couple of times now. Very frustrating. I checked the fuel pressure, it's within specs. I replaced the fuel pump relay, cleaned the idle air solenoid and replaced the coolant temp sensor. I'd be very interested to know if you got your problem fixed and HOW.....(??) Thanks! -

Could be the battery? could be fuel pump/filter (pressure build up from heat), could be vacuum leak? who knows, this is interesting. Heat tends to do things to fluids, and gases
