I drilled out the ignition i did not damage the key cylinder housing i tried the parts truck key lock cylinder but the truck woul not start thevsecurity was tripped and the truck does not roll ove

Is this that Lincoln? No, you don't want to do that, in my opinion, some of those components you want to replace will have to be programmed, so you end up right back with the original problem.
This info for spare key programming.
Turn the ignition to run for 1 second with one of existing keys and then remove.
Within 5 seconds, insert a second existing key, turn to the run for 1 second and then remove.
Within 10 seconds, insert a new cut key, turn to the run position for 1 second.
All 3 keys should be able to start engine.
Sorry, that's all I have.

Car starts but then cuts off

The engine control unit will turn the engine off if oil pressure is not detected within 30 seconds or so. Maybe a bad oil pressure sensor.

Will not start

Hey Sidney. On G6 it has a pass lock anti theft- in which your key is programmed into the computer. If the key is not programmed into the computer or ECM, then nothing at all, heres the steps, and where it says a new cut key on 1, ignore that, just use your key, and also you will need to take your g6 into the dealership and have them reflash the ECM, and program the VIN number into your new ECM, if not it might throw the check engine light.

1. Insert a new cut key in ignition and turn key to the ON position for
10 minutes and 30 seconds.

2. Within 45 seconds turn the key to OFF and then back to the ON position for
10 minutes and 30 seconds. 3. Within 45 seconds turn the key to OFF and then back to the ON position for
10 minutes and 30 seconds.

4. Turn key OFF then back ON. The key is now programmed.
Start vehicle to test key.

I put the wrong key in the ignition and had to have ignition replaced. so have new keys that are not programmed to my car.

Take it to a dealer.. only they can program a "master" key. then you can program the second key by starting the car with the master then removing the key and then starting the car with the second key within 5 seconds.

Ok a quick check. When the engine cuts out and you go for restart it dies within 5 seconds. Next time put the ignition at position 2 (on but not starting) and wait one minute, then start the car. If the engine again runs for 30 seconds before cutting off this tells you its is a fuel problem. If the fuel is supplied slowly it fills the carburettor fuel bowls and when the car starts it quickly uses up these local reservoirs of fuel faster than they can be replenished. When you try to restart immediately there is only a tiny amount of fuel and so it used up almost immediately. By leaving the ignition on 2 for while it gives the pump time to fill the carburettor bowls and this takes a while longer to run down when the engine starts. Just before moving on does the car have a choke OK remove the low tension connection to the coil, basically remove any chance of a spark. Put a big old towel around the carb. Now remove the fuel line at the carburettor and put ignition on 2 to engage the starter pump. Listen to pump operation and look at the rate of fuel being pushed from the disconnected fuel pipe. If the flow is slow check on pump and filters.

Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should lock then unlock automatically indicating successful entry into programming mode. Return to step 1 if the locks do not cycle at this point.

I think you're describing a classic case of "hesitation." Basically, the engine hesitates when you step on the gas. I would start by checking the timing with the engine at operating temperature to be sure it's within spec.
