SOURCE: turns over but wont start.
Start by checking if it's a fuel or fire problem. Take a plug wire off and turn motor over.If there is fire, Take the hose going from the air cleaner to the throtle body off and spray a small amount of carb. cleaner in.If it's a fuel prob.,check the fuel pump relay (under the hood in a black box) (swap the relay out with another relay in the box ) If the relay is o.k., it's probly the fuel pump. If it;s a fireing prob., start with the coil and wires going to the coil.

well if spark quits fuel usaly will to computer will do this to stop cadilac converter from filling with fuel!and causeing a fire saftey feature!!!!okay disconect battery wait a couple of minutes reconect! turn key on postion do not start or crank!off then on until you hear a GRRRRunt that is your fuel pump that is what you should hear turn your head to the right towards back seet and once you hear it that means pump is good then crank it then spark should quit if the coil packs a r bad then you have your problem if so test for spark also if you have eng light on cut the case hook up obd 2 scan find the fault and fix THIS IS WHAT I WOULD DO CHEERS!

Your problem could be cause by either, both or neither. Start by checking the easiest things first. Check that the spark plug wires are connected in the proper firing order. The firing order is 1-3-4-2.
Next check that all of the plugs that were removed are firmly plugged in. Even check the ones you did not remove, just in case.
Next check that you get fuel and spark. Although it is not conclusive, if you smell fuel out of the exhaust, you are probably getting fuel. The best way is to use a fuel pressure gauge to make sure you are getting fuel at the correct pressure. Typically, base fuel pressure is in the neighborhood of 42 psi with the vacuum line disconnected from the pressure regulator. For spark, a quick test is to remove a plug, connect it to the spark plug wire, firmly ground the metal body of the spark plug, crank the engine and observe the gap for spark. This does not tell you the quality of the spark, it only tells you that there is a spark being produced but may not be hot enough to ignite the fuel. If you are not getting a spark, troubleshoot and repair before proceeding.
If all of the above have been done and it still does not start, than check that the timing marks line up.
Post up a follow up if the timing marks are lined up properly.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
PCM (powertrain control module) is surely faulty. As a first course of action please swap the PCM for it is like a car's brain that when it's faulty something else will surely fail.
One good reason why it only starts on starting fluid even you can hear the fuel pump working. Once replaced you'll be good.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

You might want to take a look at the fuel pressure regulator. If the diaphram is stuck you wont get the pressure needed to start.
