    There seems to be an issue with the 2018 F-150 with the 5.0L engine having difficulty starting after traveling at highway speeds. There appears to be an issue with the starter being located in close proximity to the exhaust manifold and getting too hot “heat soak”. It has happened when stopping for fuel and the truck was hard to start. Like the starter was “dragging”. Has this problem been addressed before?
