Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

Yeah, I was thinking the same. The coolant temp sensor could be totally dry and it'd still start and run. Poor fuel pressure is definitely where I'd start. Bad pump, clogged filter. Try this. Turn the key on to just the point before the starter activates, and give it a few seconds, then go the rest of the way to kick in the starter. This will give the fuel system time to build up some pressure. It will also point towards the problem. You will want to have that fuel pressure checked. Then go from there.
