hard to start engine

I have a 1993 Eurovan, MV model. It starts fine when cold. When it sits in the sun on a hot day, I need to try many times to start the engine. It seems to be an electrical problem, like I'm loosing electrical continuity. I'm guessing that it could be a partially faulty ignition switch or starter relay or maybe the starter solenoid. Can someone tell me where the starter relay is located. Thankyou.

I'm trying to catch up on posts that have not been answered. I thought I saw an answer to this one come through. The answer to the question on the location of the starter solenoid is that it is on the side of the starter. That may or may not be your problem. If you live where they use road salt, it could be a corroded wire to the starter. Of course, there are many other possible causes. Another posting that I made today was about the hall sending unit in the distributor. I noted that there have been reports of this being bad when the Van was hot. Maybe your hot day problem is similar. Long shot. Keep trying different things until you narrow in on the problem.
