Sounds really familiar-I had an '88 VW fox that would
start fine COLD then puke on its own gas when it
warmed up.  !@#$^&*( stalled out on me on an
interstate about 10 miles from home.

Temp sensor was open or had insanely high resistance. 
Bernard's idea is very creative w(ith the series
resistors), but I simply went to the "furrin kar
parts" place and bought a new one.

We electrical types call that an "NTC"
thermistor-negative temperature
coefficient...resistance goes DOWN as temperature of
the device INCREASES.
