WARMS UP, STAHLS AT IDLE, HARD TO R

Engine starts perfect, drives perfect.
After 5 minutes, engine begins to "sputter" at idle speed only.
Eventually engine will stall and become nearly impossible to restart.
Use of accelerator pedal will maintain higher RPMs to keep engine running.
After approximately ½ hour of downtime, engine will restart and the cycle begins again.

No components have been replaced for this issue. Just plenty of reseating. Considering Coolant Temp. Sensor replacement

How say ye?
