Make sure the crank sensor is properly installed and gapped. Make sure the connector is attached. Have it scanned for soft codes.

The high intake temp will cause mixture issues and cause a no start and poor running. Lack of or improper ign adv will also cause those problems. Check the connections and grounds. Check the ignition timing.
