after getting my 1996 econoline 150 back from having starter replacd, it ran ok until warm and then when tried to start it it would not start although it woudl turn over. eventually would start but after many tries and pumping. when it was cold start it would start fine. problem was immediate after getting starter replaced by neighbor, and i cant see what would have caused this from that procedure but it ran fine up to and including when i drove it over there. is it likely just to be coincidence and it is the distributor module or ?

It is a coincidence. Obviously the component that is causing the problem is heat sensitive. That circumstance means that anything from a crankshaft position sensor to the ignition coil, and quite a few other components "in between", could be at issue. It is also possible to have vacuum leaks that might only be apparent when the engine is warm. At any rate, the way to diagnose this is when the engine is hot. All the possibilities are simply tested, in sequence, and you will find the fault. If you desire a quick resolution, please feel free to request a no/hard starting - engine diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get this resolved for you promptly.
