Question about 1993 Chevrolet Corsica
This car sat for a few years....replaced fuel pump and tank.....vehicle will start cold ..only run a few minutes then begin to cut out and die....wont start again till it has sat a couple hours....acts like its not getting any fire....
After it dies, try starting it by holding the pedal to the floor then turning the ignition. If that works, it means it is actually flooding the engine and choking it out with too much fuel. The one thing you said that jumps out at me is the temp sensor you changed. Which one did you change. Most people think their is only one. If you changed the one on the front right of the engine right next to the coolant outlet hose than you changed the wrong one. This one has 4 wires, and that goes to the actual temp gauge, which effects nothing but the guage in the dash. The one you want is by the thermostat housing and has only 2 wires. It is about half the diameter of the guage one.

I'm not an expert, but maybe a can of Sea Foam fuel system cleaner with the recomended amount of fuel in the tank; and pour half of another can in with the oil; and lightly dip up and down the end of the vaccum line from the vaccum booster until the rest of the half can of Sea Foam is siphened up while the engine is running might help. You want to be sure and lightly and slowly dip the vacuum line up and down in the Sea Foam so that you don't get too much Sea Foam in the way of the cylinders in the engine going up and down: ( That could cause damage. ) Then shut the motor off and w
ait a few hours so that the Sea Foam can do it's work. Then try starting and running it to see if it helped any. Sometimes an old car needs the vaccum line thing done two or three times. ( I've found Wal-Mart has the best price on Sea Foam. ) Good Luck Hopefully.
