TOYOTA TACOMA ENGINE PROBLEM

1997 Toyota Tacoma • 192,000 miles

This is a 1997 Toyota Tacoma, 5-speed manual shift with a 2.7 liter engine. After the engine gets hot (after driving about 30 minutes or so), then turned off and it sits for about 20 minutes, it does not want to restart. It winds and winds but will not start. It has started by rolling it off. I have replaced the fuel pump, the fuel filter, the plug wires, the spark plugs, and the water coolent sensor. The throtte body has been cleaned, the mass air flow sensor has been cleaned, and then replaced with a new one. The catalytic converter was replaced about 6-8 months ago, and the fuel injectors were changed out wabout a year ago. The battery has been tested and is good. When trying to restart the engine, the truck seems to act as if it is flooded, and it smells like old gas but is not. This has been going on for about 2-months. The truck always starts when the engine is cold. The check engine light has not come on. Any advice or suggestions? Thank you.
