Default Tuck runs rough after reaching "operating temp"

2001 Dodge Ram, 1500, 5.2L(318 C I), ear Wheel Drive : After engine reaches "operating temp", it runs rough, coughs and sputters, does not accelerate, pings, no more than 1000 RPM otherwise it stalls....However, I let it cool down, it starts and runs just fine UNTIL it reaches "operating temp" and we go thru the same scenario again...

When it first began to act up, I replaced Plugs, Wires, Distributor Cap and Rotor, however, that did not fix it. So, then based on my Buddy putting a Meter on it, I subsequenty replaced the Ignition Pick-Up and the Coil---that has not helped either...

The fact that it acts up when it reaches "operating temp" and runs fine UNTIL that time, I am thinking it is a Sensor of some sort that is subject to ambient and engine operating temps....

Any suggestions/recommendations ?
