What have you checked so far ?
With any no-start situation you need to know if you have spark to the plugs, fuel to the injectors, and normal compression.

    It could be the module if you are not getting spark to the plugs. A clicking noise is usually a relay, unless it is the spark arcing from the coil to ground.

SOURCE: 95 saturn dies when stopping

More than likely a charging issue. Otherwise the cars idle setting has changed (Unlikely) If your alternator is not putting out 13.5-14.5v at idle, your car will indeed stall. If you get this checked at an autoparts store, make sure they test both at the alternator and at the battery, since a bad cable can lead to the same problem with a good alternator. Good Luck

Start with fuel system. Listen for fuel pump humm at fuel tank No humm check wiring to pump for power. Then check for spark at plugs and wires. Remove wire from coil and hold near engine and see arch when you crank. No arch. Replace ignition Modular inside distributor cap or cap or rotor

Motor starts then dies several times when cold


Sounds like the cold start solenoid. It is designed to keep the engine running at a set RPM until it reaches a specific engine temp.

Truck runs rough at start-up in the mornings


If this happens only when the engine is cold or cool, I would suspect a coolant temperature senor that has lost its calibration.
One way to check would be to have the engine controller scanned when the engine is cool then cold.
The coolant temperature should be the same as the intake air temperature. If the readings are not close to one another, change the coolant sensor.
The coolant temp sensor controls the fuel mixture when the engine is cold, normal or hot.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,
