Default Car won't crank fast enough to start when engine is hot

Hyundai Matrix 2002 automatic

Cold start is no problem at all. smooth rotation of the engine and immediate starting response.

As soon as the engine warms up, huge drag on the starter motor and hardly turns. it sounds like the battery is drained or the motor is stuck. If i jump start, starts immediately.

Have replaced the starter motor 2 times. First one was almost charred in under 1 year. It all started after i rebuilt the engine a year ago.

1. i have replaced the starter motor 2 times (rebuilt motors)

2. Upgraded the cooling fan with a higher RPM

3. Added an Neutral cable from the battery

4. increased the AMP with a new battery

5. Flushed the cooling system

Problem sill persists.

Any idea what i need to do to fix this.

Thanks
Matrix

matrix fluid is DEFINITLY low .... the matrix fluid compartment is under the passenger side wheel well above the axle - kinda hard to get to. and only hyundai dealerships carry the fluid & if i recall correctly it's like $85 a quart & the reservoir holds/needs 2 quarts.
