I'm having a couple of issues with this vehicle I'm

I'm having a couple of issues with this vehicle I'm wondering if they're related.Hard to get started or stay running when cold. But once it's warmed up or running for a couple of mins it starts fine.Took to oreilly, said I needed a TPS , so we replace the throttle position sensor first thing this morning started still same issue. I do not have the specific code in through. It's been driven about 30 miles and no check engine light has come on.Will get warm if sitting at an idle after the vehicle is fully reached operating temperature meaning it's almost to the red if I drive the vehicle I can get the temperature to drop down or if I'm just driving it on the highway the temperature runs normal. I just purchased this vehicle it had a lot of black junk almost like tar in the radiator cap. Sticks to your fingers like grease.

2000 Chevy Silverado 5.3 with automatic. Change the air

2000 Chevy Silverado 5.3 with automatic. Change the air conditioning pump and expansion valve. But the AC still doesn't seem to work as good as it should for the accumulator because of the problem? I'm running pressure of 55 to 60 on the low side and about 320 on the high side in 95 to 100° weather. Temperature at the center event at full blast is running about 70° to 75

This is regarding the 1990 K1500 resto-mod, FAST EZ efi 2.0.

This is regarding the 1990 K1500 resto-mod, FAST EZ efi 2.0. I will get the MIG Stainless Steel supplies when the stores open on Mon. I'm going to work on the fan wiring until then. I got the Jegs dual fan kit that you recommended. It is set up as a negative side pull. The yellow wires are 12V switches, hot with key on, grey wires go to the fan wires from the pcu/kit. Then everything else is wired exactly as they have it in their wiring schematic right? On the Dorman fans there is a heavier gauge white wire on the L (driver's side, and a lighter gauge black wire on the R (passenger's) side? What wire goes to the purple (+) and to ground (-) in this setup? Thank you.
