Try unplugging the temp sender and then try jumpering it. Will it not start at all when warm,or real long crank? I'm assuming it's still TBI,so have someone watch the injectors while cranking to see if there's fuel coming out.

Could also be the Hall effect switch try to borrow a scanner to check the fault codes

what about oil pressure switch. did they use it as part of the fuel system that old?

Sounds like a coolant temp sensor problem. That style distributor has a vrt, not a hall effect. Does it have spark/fuel when it won't start?

do you loose spark or fuel , i would check the fuel pump relay , see if it gets hot or any damage to the connector , also check fuel pump wiring , notorious for corrosion @ the tank sender assembly and the ground @ the frame rail , heat equalls resistance in a circuit

relay by the distributor on the fire wall

Yes they did use the oil pressure switch as part of the fuel pump cicuit on those. My 88 s15 was wired that way with the 2.5L and is now with the 355 as well. If you suspect weak or no oil pressure when its hot or faulty oil psi switch un plug it and run a jumper wire between the two parralell wires on the plug (its probly a 3 prong plug) This will by pass the oil switch.
