cold hesitation and stalling

Okay I have a 90 tbird 3.8 na..I just recently change my temp sensor and now my car will take a long time to warm up then go H then L and during this if I try to accelerate it was shudder and or stall.....Once the car warms up after about 10 min it drives fine!

I checked my IAC I was getting 12 ohms so its fine....Should I check the TPS?? and how exactly......but that still will not solve the warming up thing..I know that my fan always runs so i put cardboard in front the rad in the winter but now that is getting nice i dont have it there.
Anyone know???

Sounds like a defective sensor (ECT).

If all else fails get a bigger hammer!

you might be getting a good reading from the IAC, but take it off and look at it. Make sure it isn't gummed up.
