I can't give you a cure for your problem online as testing MUST be done. Computer scanning and individual Component tests are the only way to verify a failure. If a shop is doing the work, I certainly hope they aren't charging you for iteems replaced that did nothing towards making an adequate repair.
Off hand, I'd be looking for a bad connection such as inside the ignition switch or since you mentioned a timing sensor (there is no such thing) either you replaced the crank position sensor or the cam sensor. Whichever was replaced, check the other one.
Wiring failures most often happen at the connector pins or behind the connector plug where moisture gets in and corrodes the internal connection. All of that needs to be tested for continuity and resistance.

What you're describing is a pretty normal phenomenon - the choke is sticking, evidenced by the fact that it improves as it warms up. Are you sure it's fuel-injected, or does it have a carb? If that's not it, it could be one or more of a dozen things - bad plug wires or plugs, dirty fuel filter and/or air filter, bad or dirty carb (if it has one), fuel line blockage, bad PVC valve or O2 sensor. If you have a bad electronic ignition the car wouldn't start or run at all. They either work or don't. Perhaps your problem is as simple as putting in a good injector cleaner like Sea Foam or equivalent. Drop by the parts store and explain. I've found Advance Auto to be super-helpful in diagnosing stuff like this - FREE.

try lubricating all your linkages and always make sure all 4 tires are the same diameter. this makes shifting in and out a lot easier. you are shifting it on the fly right?? not stopped?

The pulley you describe sounds like the idle pulley and it should be straight and if you remove the belt and turn the pulley it should roll free and not bind. In short I would change the pulley as it has a bad bearing in it.
