2005 Impreza 2.5 RS 168,xxx miles

previous owner changed timing belt, radiator and water pump.

i added new hoses, bled the cooling system after new fluids. realized a lot of oil in spark plug wells after issues with starting. Cleaned wells out, replaced valve cover gaskets and well gaskets, plugs and wires.

runs great when it finally turns over.

it’ll crank and crank. I’ll say f it, go inside come back, burn the starter up again and it’ll finally start.

Once started, I can turn it off and it’ll start right back up. No starts are after car has been sitting, not running.

After seeing a thread of how cooling systems work on here, I remembered the temp sensor. Any suggestions??
