It will start when engine is cold and runs good; however, once you turn it off and try to start it again it will turn over but wont start. You have to let it sit for 4-6 hours then it will start again and will often over heat even with coolant. Also there is a major coolant leak from the back right/middle of the engine.
Do you

When it won't start, have you checked if it is getting spark and fuel to the engine?

One will be missing, spark or fuel. That is what we need to determine so we can focus on where the problem is coming from.
