Question about 1992 Chevrolet S-10
Some guesses for you ......
It's possible for a clogged fuel inlet line to cause a vapor lock condition because it causes the gasoline to be placed under a high vacuum.
Of course, the solution is to change the fuel filter and check the fuel lines for damage or being crushed out of shape.
My favorite remedy is to check the fuel tank cap. If it's a vented cap and the vents are clogged, then vapor lock is a possible result. Poor gasoline is a cause for some vapor lock
check the return tank canister purge valve.
try a stronger battery.
see if its gas starved pour about 2 oz down the wingnut center of carb an see if it starts

With no spark or injector pulse, my first guess would be the ignition module. Swapping the module with a new one may be the only way to find out. You may be able to take it out and get it tested, but I doubt a problem will show up if it is cold. A shop manual would have a flow chart with test procedures.

SOURCE: Stalls when engne warms up
Your ECT (Engine Coolant Temp) sensor is bad. What's happening is at cold start it richens up the fuel mixture and as it warms up the ECM thinks it's still cold and essentially the "choke" is still on. Also check your coolant level. If you don't have enough coolant in you engine/radiator, the ECT doesn't know what to do so it thinks it's cold.

I'd suggest the ignition control module, however I'd have a certified mechanic check it out just in case...

it's probably a fuel injection problem. the seals wear or get some little bit of junk in seal surface and are unable to completely close. it's not a problem as long as the engine is running, the seals let in a little more fuel and the computer adjusts for it. after you shut it off the leaky seals let the fuel into the cylinders and then if you try to start it up it is for all intents and purposes a flooded engine. if you don't try to start it again for a good while the fuel that leaked into the cylinders evaporates or runs down into your oil pan. anyway, it's not there and so your engine is not flooded and it starts like it's supposed to. obviously i haven't looked at your vehicle and that's just a guess but it's based on vehicles i have seen. hope that helps
