sounds like the same thing that was wrong with the 94 GS i recently bought. found the crankshaft postion sensor to be bad. it controls your electronic spark timing which would allow it to turn over with out starting.
also does your stall when you are stopped and at idle or while at driving speed or both? mine would stall at idle and driving speeds. Changed that sensor and have not had any more issues with stalling. sensor should cost around $30-$40 dollars at your local autozone, takes about 2 hours to change just need to pull the harmonic balancer pulley (make sure to use the proper tool or you will bend the pulley) and the sensor is behind the pulley. you will gain easier access to doing the maintenace buy removing the passenger front tire and the little splash gaurd directly behind the tire held on by 3 quick release fasteners. hope this helps you out.

I'm not Roger but can tell you this....if you have a bad crankshaft position sensor or a corrupt ECM....your car will do that.....last things could be the timing belt.

I had a similar problem....my 98 regal GS did the same. There is a two stage fuel pump resistor located in the right inner finder. It was corroded and open. The fix requires relocating new resister on firewall. Fix was $165.00 + tax to my mechanic and runs like new now. Hard to diagnose problem per mechanic.
