91 camaro rs 5.0 won't idle

i just bought this camaro, which did'nt run for about a year. Brought the car home,tried to start car and it would start and then die out like it was out of fuel.it has 5 gals. of gas in it. then a friend ck it out with his DG scan and it showed that the temp. control sensor on the intake was showing bad, so he disconnected the sensor and it started right up.connected it back and the car would die out. i changed the sensor thinking it was that. guess what it did the same thing like it had no fuel. somebody please help me.

get your buddy back with his scan tool and moniter the coolant temp while manipulating the connector and related harness.Stop when the parameter skews,you have now located the intermittent open in the circuit.Look for spread terminals inside the connector.You can replace or tweak with a pick for more pin to terminal contact.

Thanks For Responding Flatblock, I Will Try That First Thing Tomorrow And If It Works, Right On And If It Still Won't Start Then Back To The Drawing Board. But Again Thank You
