HARD TO START WHEN HOT.

2000 Chevrolet Silverado • 119 miles

I have had a problem with hot starts with my 2000 Silverado 5.3 engine.
It starts right up when cold or within 5 minutes of running at fully hot.
Aftger 5 minutes or so, it takes turning over up to 10 seconds before starting and then it idles rough for a short time. I took it to the closest Chevy dealer and they checked it over and were perplexed having never had a problem like
that. They check the computer, checked the fuel pump (good pressure), cleaned out the fuel line and installed a new fuel filter. I put this on the internet and someone said it was the Engine Coolant temperature sensor.
I changed that today but I still have the problem. ANY IDEAS?

Thanks

Check the crank an dcam sensors for ohms. If resistance to high replacewhich one has the high resistance. Tehse can do this without setting a code. Also clean your throttle plate with choke cleaner on both sides as well as iac hole.
