My Truck Doesn't Like to Start Sometimes

I’m having some problems with my pickup. It will start when the engine is cold, but if I drive around and turn it off once it’s warm, it doesn’t want to start. I usually have to let it cool off before I can start it again. We first thought it was the starter, so we replaced it. However, it’s still doing the same thing. Does anyone have any ideas?

You need to tell us what the truck is, model and make and year, and how it is not starting. Does it just turn over with no catch, not turn over at all, etc.

oops! It’s a two wheel drive, '93 Toyota Pickup with an SR22E. When I try to start it, it turns but doesn’t catch. I’m not very mechanical, so let me know what other type of information I need to give.
