Starter drags

Ford Explorer 1995  111111 miles
A friend of mine has a mid 90's model explorer eddie bauer. His starter drags and acts as if there isnt enough juice to start it only when the engine is warmed up. When is cold or cooled down (sat for an hour or so) it starts fine. I was looking for some possible reasons for this to happen. Ive never heard of this type of problem before in my life. Thanx for any help.

Trouble starting

Ford Explorer 1997 4L v6 sohc 76000 miles
When you put the key in ignition and turn to start the car will not start,you turn the key to off and remove the key all the dash lights stay on only way to turn them off is disconnect the battery. We can start the car with a wire from battery to starter relay but it will not switch off and carries on running even with key out so we have to pull the battery lead off or unplug the ignition switch. The ignition switch and ignition barrel have been replaced but this has not solved the problem. Any help will be appreciated

Engine won't turn

Ford Explorer 2004 4l ohc xlt auto 150000 miles
Car ran o. K. Yesterday. Went to start today and motor won't turn over. Removed starter and tried to turn motor over with a long wrench on the front pulley but it will not move in any direction. The motor was running normally without any noises at all yesterday. I have removed spark plugs but it still will not turn by using wrench on harmonic balance nut. Any suggestions please!!!!!!!!

Car wont crank

Ford Explorer 1997 v-6 260000 miles
I have changed the battery and the starter because my car sometimes starts and then wont start. I've wiggled the ignition and the tilt steering wheel to check if it was the ignition and it started. Then i turned car off and next day would not start again. I haven't gotten the car to start again since. Maybe relay?
