I have a problem with low preasure with the hot water on my kitchen sink only, every other faucet in the house is fine..

I have a Delta single handle faucet Ball type, when I move the handle to the hot side I only get about 1/3 to 1/2 the water preasure I usually get when it is on cold.

I have replaced the valves inside thinking that might be causing the problem, that did not fix it.

I was wondering if any one out there knows what could be causing this issue with loss of water pressure in the 1 faucet

Check to make sure the shut off valve under the sink for the hot side is not patially closed.

Otherwise, you may have debris in the line that could require a bit of flushing to remove.
