1987 Dodge Raider

Engine Mechanical problem
1987 Dodge Raider 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 144000 miles

Have 1987 Dodge Raider, 4cyl, manual trans. When in Montana last year had a problem that it would not start after driving the car and it getting wram/hot. (Elev appx 6000 ft )The temp guage never read hot, but weather was warm arounf 85 degrees and once you drove the car for an hour or more it would not start unless you let it set for about 45 minutes to cool down? This only happened there and am not sure if it could be the thin air, or coil, or the gas line vapor locking. Any ideas how to narrow this down to get it fixed? We do not drive this car that much since we pull in behind an RV and have not driven the car in similiar weather here in Virginia to see if the problem would replicate itself.
