(1)Remove the air cleaner, looking down the primary throttle bore (front) move the throttle at the carburetor. Did you see fuel spray? if so its not a fuel related issue.
(2)Next, check your battery cables. High resistance in a cable (corrosion) will get worse with heat. Heat increases resistance. You may want to replace them depending how old they are. You need to check for condition and security of how they are connected ( good tight, clean connections). Sometimes its difficult to spot corrosion with the plastic insulation on top of the cable. Corrosion is usually at the ends where the bare wire is exposed.
(3) May have a bad starter. My old Ford would crank slow when hot. Found bad cables, but eventually had to replace starter too. Works great now.

SOURCE: car engine hesitates and loses power

You need to check distributor cap/wiring/spark plugs. when engine cold resistans at electric parts/connections is low. Then it warms up it increases and electric current goes down. Maybe you have bad connection somethere. Your car is equpped with digital motor electronics fuel (DME) injection. Here there is component location and diagnostic:

Also I would check fuel injectors itself (use injector cleaner), fuel filter (replace). If no help MAF sensor, trottle position sensor. There is good repair guide here:

SOURCE: 1996 Chevy Silverado 1500 Starting Problems

Just from what you said it sounds like your vehicle might not be holding its residual pressure which means after you turn a vehicle off, your fuel injection system should hold a certain amount of pressure in the system, but if that pressure drops to fast your vehicle may have a hard time starting. Things to look for when you lose fuel pressure is the fuel pressure regulator may be leaking, fuel pump check valve,leaky fuel injector or they maybe a small leak in one of the fuel lines. I only suggested this cause i had a car with the similar problem.

Looking for free info to swap out 6 cylinder to 327 engine in 1963 chevy II sedan


There is a lot to consider if you've never done any conversions before. I'd check with a chevrolet hotrod enthusiast forum first as they may have this info already listed. Possibly a new transmission, cut and balanced drive shaft, new motor mounts, new radiator for increased cooling capacity, new body bushings or suspension components, a new carb for increased volume for higher fuel consumption etc etc get the picture

Temperature gauge needle dropped to the cold side for no reason. all fluids are good. then the check engine light went on.


Your thermostat sound like it is stuck open.
How it works is your thermostat is designed to be closed when your engine is cold.
After you start your car your engine coolant circulates in the engine block.
This helps the engine reach its normal running temperature.
When your engine reaches the normal running temperature the thermostat slowly opens allowing the coolant to circulate through your radiator. the radiator cools the coolant and maintains your engine temperature so your engine does not over heat.
If your thermostat is stuck open your coolant is not permitted to allow the engine to reach normal running temperature. Causing your low temperature reading.
Hope this helps please give feedback good luck FixYa

2000 chevy blazer starting issues


swng,
1) Is the service engine soon light ever on when engine is running?
2) Per your description I would look at the ECT sending unit. It sends coolant temperature information the the Engine Control Module for proper fuel delivery for cold engine start. It may have lost its calibration.
Let me know.
Regards,
