Is the security light on? If you have spark and fuel, it should run. Any codes? Could be bad crank sensor or cam sensor.

has to be corroded fuel pump resistor behind passenger head light under hood but Im sure by now you have done the research and found that out already 97 gtps had recalls because its in an easy spot to get corroded can buy a new kit for 40 bucks or so through gm or online

spark plug gaps are very critical on computerised cars!! [some wont even start!]
distributor module may be breeaking down as temp rises they fail!
otherwise do compression check as it may have valve problems
also check plug leads & injectors aswell as the fuel pump pressure [ could bestarving for fuel]

Is the electric fuel pump in the gas tank working ? turn the key to start positon and listen for a small humming noise you may have to have someone get under car to listen if it is humming then it`s working if not first check for a reset button possible in trunk be sure manual to find it if it has one and check fuse in fuse box if all is good there then it might be the fuel pressure regulator
