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

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

Car suddenly stalls going down the road, sometimes restarting instantly and sometime not at all

First question: When was last healthy tune up? Plugs, plug wires, ALL filters replaced including Fuel filter? I'd start there before throwing "suggested parts". at it. Doing a tune up will give you a good "ground zero" starting point and a tune up will normally address your symptoms.

Your fuel pump may have gone bad. You can remove the air filter housing and spray some carb cleaner into it while somebody cranks the engine. If it starts, you know it has a fuel problem.

Will not start without putting foot on gas

I had the same problem. You should clean out your throttle body. You can prob do it yourself in 20 minutes or less. My 04 grand prix starts up everytime now.

Engine starts up and after 1-5 minutes the engine will stall

the ECM is located under the hood on the passenger side under the coolant resevrior. i think you should get some professional advise before replacing all those parts.
