When hot lights, come on and loose power

I have a 91 Convertible camaro. When it starts the motor sounds good but when it heats up, the maintenance lights come on and the motor looses power. It slows down and it looses power. It was suggested I change the temperture sensor and I did changed it but it only made the problem a bit longer to come on. Any one has this problem and can advise?
Thank you.

Thank you.
Symptoms sound like bad fuel injector coil packs. Check each pack for proper operating voltage (12.8 to 14 volts) when closed loop (operating) temperature is reached. Injectors will malfunction with the voltage around 2 volts and the solenoid will not open to allow fuel flow.
