Question about Pontiac Grand Prix
Check for fuel pressure at fuel rail near injectors, if the pressure is good, test for spark with an induction timing light , if there is no spark, check the pickup coil with an OHM meter. if it's open replace it. on a 3800 the coil is between the engine and trans about centered on the crankshaft. one 10mm bolt holds it in, two wire plug. if the engine just suddenly stopped like it was shut off with the key and never started again while cranking strongly start with the sensor first , it's easy to check. my position sensor or pickup coil would read good when it was cold and open when the car warmed up, it had a small crack in it when i pulled it out . some place to start any way, the part was 20 bucks.

See if you have spark at plug from plug wire.
these gm cars have a problem with the ignition module under the distributor cap and rotor button.
when they fail, car dies suddenly and will not restart.fairly easy to replace and not to expensive.
