sounds more like a valve problem. Weak valve spring or worn valve guide. Something mechanical that changes when the engine heats up.

Non-Step Style - If you look inside the connector on the Camshaft Position Sensor; you are looking at the socket (female) side of a quick connect plug. For the non-step style plug socket, the hole is the same size in the front of the plug socket as it is at the back (bottomed out in the socket hole) end of the plug socket. This means the tip of the plug (male end of the quick connect) from the vehicle will be the same size as the back end of the quick connect plug, (no step down in size.)

Step Style - If you look inside the connector on the Camshaft Position Sensor; you are looking at the socket (female) side of a quick connect plug. For the step style plug socket, the hole is large at the front of the socket, then about .25 (1/4) inches into the socket, the size of the socket steps down about .0625 (1/16) inches. This means that .25 (1/4) inches into the socket, the socket hole steps down and is smaller than the socket hole at the front of the socket. The smaller socket dimension remains this size the rest of the way back (bottomed out in the socket hole) of the plug socket. Looking at the vehicle side of the quick connect plug, the tip of the plug (steps down in size.)

The heater core might have a blockage or the inlet water valve may be stuck. The thermostat on the engine may be stuck open as well.

I see that you replaced battery, coil, plugs, wires, cap and rotor. Did you or do you have a check engine light or SES light on? If you did not I agree with the problem being Anti theft which includes a replacement key not having a transponder chip. BUT at the same time it could be something as simple as dirty battery post or bad battery cables, since sometimes it does start. I RECOMMEND CHECKING THE BATTERY CABLES FIRST. let me know if this works for you.

Have the throttle sensor checked. Go to Auto Zone, or Advance Auto, and have them hookup the scanner. There is no charge for this. See if there are any codes present. Good luck.

Pretty easy if your mechanically inclined. Raise the vechicle and put it on jack stands. Remove the tire unbolt the outer tie rod hit around it a few times with a hammer since its been in for awhile and that will release it unbolt lower ball joint hit around it with your hammer you'll need a pry bar pry down on the lower control arm so the ball joint will pop out of the knuckle. Remove the cotter pin from the center bolt then remove the center bolt which may be between a 21mm to a 30mm before you completely remove the bolt tap on it a few time to loosen the axle from the bearing. Pull the spindle toward you and the axle should come out. With your pry bar pry the inner shaft out from the transmission. take the new one put it back into the tranny tap on it lightly with the bolt back on because you dont want to ruin the threads and once it flushes just put it back through the spindle put the ball joint back in put the tie rod back on tighten everything dont forget to put cotter pins back in. Sounds like fun I have to do one this weekend Good luck
