I put a new temp sensor in it and I couldn't get it to replicate the symptoms. But I'm not convinced the weather doesn't have more to do with it than the sensor. The fans did kick on briefly without the AC on which is something I haven't seen it do until this point.

Seems like the temp sensor fixed it. Fans work like I think they should. I've been the situation that made it stall/not restart multiple times now and it's been fine.

Temp sensor didn't fix it. I drove it to Bowling Green on a not very warm day. It left my stranded, got a ride home on a trailer, and made me an hour late to work. I got angry at it and didn't look at it until today. Took the ignition control module off since that was the best guess anyone had. Turns out there's a crack in the housing around the connector that I believe is the one that gives it power. I have a new one ready to go on as soon as I can figure out where I lost that thermal paste I bought.

I found a random piece of wood to use as a hood prop, pulled the upper intake off, found out you still can't get to the cam position sensor that way. So I put it all back together with new gaskets, fixed a couple new vacuum leaks I made. Now it hunts idle with cold but idles at 800rpm when it's warmed up. It's also way down on power and the transmission doesn't seem to want to kick down. Next attack is to come up with a serpentine belt tool then pull the power steering pump off to try getting at the sensor that way.

But the AC still works, so I got that going for me, which is nice.
