    You may not need a sensor, you may have problem with the fuel system holding pressure caused by it bleeding off and causing you to have trouble starting. When you experience the problem you need to find out what is missing at the time, spark or fuel. May need qualified tech to look at it and advise.

    Also, Have your Coolant Temp Sensor checked to verify that it is reading the correct values in relation to voltage/temp. These sensors are two stage sensors. As mentioned in your previous answer, have a qualified Technician evaluate your vehicle.
