No, we were thinking about that. It starts and idle fine when its cold but after it warms up it stales and doesn't want to start up and when it does start it wont stay running.

I would replace the bottom coolant temp sensor and inspect the inside of the connector if the terminals are green or blue instead of silver you will need to replace the connector also. Then see how it runs.

Your welcome sounded like a bad coolant temp sensor.
