03 Durango will not start when warm

My daughters 2003 Durango will not start when engine is warm.
Cranks over fine and plenty of fuel pressure in fuel lines.It a 4.7L
Needs to sit 30 minutes or so before its starts.
It does have the engine icon light while driving and does hesitate and chug a little while trying to pass.
Thanks for any advice

The best thing to do would be to go to an autozone and have the codes pulled. They do it as a service.

The things that come to mind are engine temp sensor reading cold and flooding the engine.

Or leaking injectors which flood the engine.

Or a bad ignition module.

Or a bad ignition coil which acts up when hot and works when it cools down.

Good point about Auto Zone, never gave that a thought.
I Should have checked for spark.Not certail on the flooding, it spins and starts too easy when it starts without any problem.
The ignition module sure sounds like a good place to start,I totally forgot I had to replace mine in my GM truck after the same no start issue.Not familiar with Dodge but is it also in the distributor do you know?One other thing and not sure, but my Daughter was hit in the drivers door by a deer and bowed it in pretty good, still closes normal but she says the engine light and the no start problems started right after that??Im thinking she never gave the dash a single look before.
Thanks for th info.

It ended up showing as a cam sensor on a code reader.
Excellent.
Thank you again
