Q: Starts, runs, drives fine when it is cold, on 1998 Ford Explorer

When engine warms up, and you turn off the ignition to make a pit stop, like a couple miles away, it will not start again. Engine will crank over, but will not restart. Almost like it is not getting any gas on the restarting. Around 45 minutes to an hour, engine cools and it starts right up. Runs good. Been this way for 2 weeks, car has 88,000 miles on it.
