When cold, your engine runs from a different computer mode than when warmed up...It seems that when you reach temp, the normal "run" program transitions in (undercomplicated version) Usually when the signal from the temp sending unit does not change (bad sender) the engine will remain running but will run rich. Usually if the sending unit wire is disconnected it will also remain in "cold" mode. I'm thinking that possibly the sender is internally shorting out or the computer isn't working correctly. If you have an engine light on, likely you can retrieve a code that may point you to something in that area. Or, since sender isn't very costly, change it and see if the problem clears up. (I'm not a big fan of just putting in parts without testing, but in this case it may pay off)
