Does it only do it when its warm? Or does it act up when you first start it?

    You said you checked fuel pump, what fuel pressure do you have.

    Also check to see if the EGR valve is stuck open.

94 Chrysler Lebaron Convertible will not idle but will start and run at high idle.

Try your Idle Air Control Motor. It is located on the throttle body under the throttle position sensor

I have a 93 3.0 that is doing something similar but has not gotten to the state yours is in. If you find anything out let me know. Mine is going to the shop.

My blazzer just had the fuel pump replaced, and now it starts but won't stay running/ before the fuel pump went out it never had a problem starting / they told me that it might be the Map sensor, what are...

what year? a bad map sensor will cause rough running and sputtering and very bad smell like a rotten egg smell through the exhuast. try tapping on it lightly with a scewdriver when running or trying to start, if it acts up when tapping, that is the cause and very easy to replace. when the fuel pump was replaced, you need to replace the fuel filter. the filter clogging is almost always the cause of the pump going bad.

Lost power under load

When you changed the pump, Does your pump have the regulator & filter on top of the unit or do you have a separate filter? If separate, did you change it? Of the codes you listed, the one I'd pay the most attention to is the manifold air temp sender...If faulty, it can mess with the fuel mixture, which can throw off other readings. (not saying you should ignore them entirely but it's doubtful all those items all failed at once) Re-test fuel rail pressure also...not impossible that you got a defective pump.
Good luck....need specifics on anything, I'm always here!!

96 cavalier 2.4 starts runs great -chokes

Check the crankshaft position sensor. If the plug is loose or the sensor itself is bad it will cause similar problems
