Please use proper grammar and punctuation. I don't have a chance to help if I cannot figure out the problem.

Engine size? What do you "Plug in" to make it work?

Hard to say on this one,but i don't think the tune up stuff you mentioned would have hurt it.You might double check to make sure you got the correct coolant sensor.I personally prefer the factory parts for anything that has to do with sensors or the computer.I would also assume your plugging in a block heater for the coolant system ,which might be why it works when plugged in .
If still having the problem,post here about exactly what it's doing.Is it just cranking over and over and never running?,or not cranking at all?.
