    1. Check to see if you have spark.

    2. When you turn the key to the start position does the dome light stay on?

    3. Does the engine turn over like it wants to start?

92 SL1 won't idle-wants to die without pushing gas-just put in new plugs


Remove, clean and inspect the idle control valve on the throttle body. These tend to clog up over time, or the stepper motor fails. Check this before anything else.

Won't stay started after it warms up


First did you reset the computer after replacing each of these sensors? If you did then i would check the fuel pressure it should be 48-55 psi with the key on and the engine off.If its not within these specs then replace the fuel pump and filter.

Starts cold when warm shuts off


May be the fuel pump, experienced similar problems in 1995 Intrepid. When the pump warmed up, it would start to loose pressure and car would sputter and die, but would start back up. If it started it would usually begin sputtering again and eventually die.
