crank but no start!! engine coolent temp??

Okay so for the past weeks iv haved a problem that the car wont start usauly in morning or night, basicly after sitting for long hours. It cranks but no start.. but if i did get it to start for the first time it will start flawlessly for the rest of the day so has to be something with the temp. But to get it to turn on for the first time i would have to put a new part in like spark plugs but then the same problem the next morning. I changed the distributer and spark plug wires and spark plugs twice just to get it to start for the day.

I did some searching that it can be the engine coolent temperture sensor so i replaced it from advance auto parts and it worked but the next day at night it failed..
Now i bought a new oem sensor thinking itl give a better reading to the computer but i have my doubts that itl work.

If that daosent idk what else to do because the mechanices are more clueless then i am so am stuck. I mean the car runs fine mayb its wasteing more gas then usual but everything else good if it starts. Even idle is good, a lil high but good.
Can it be a leaky injector?
I just bought it less than a month ago and i dont want to sell it just because i cant find the problem. Plz helppppp
