Engine Trouble

2003 inline 6, trouble starting when hot but strts right up after an hour or so of sitting. also sporadically drops a cylinder around the nonstop 55mile mark and drowns out around 65miles. I sit 5 minutes and it starts and drives away like nothing happened. What the hell?????

Heat soak maybe? Do you have the heat shielding on the manifold or was it removed? There should be a thread on it if you have time to search. Anything you do to get the heat out of the engine compartment helps. It may also be a clogged cat that forces heat build up. Just shootin ideas out.
