    You can test that sensor easily enough if you have a ohmmeter and can boil some water, so no need to throw good money after bad. In fact many of those parts you've replaced can be tested. You'll eventually go broke if you repair the car this way, and it can add red herrings to the issue as well.

    If the crank sensor was bad, the car wouldn't start at all. If it was the one way valve on the fuel send line, you'd have good warm starts but hard cold starts.

    It is true what you say but I use my corrado every day and really dont mind changing the parts for peace of mind as the car is over 20 years old so they wont have long life left, also will maintain the value of the car, but like you mentioned not a cheap way of doing things and probably a bit ocd.
