    My ignition key is just a plain key with no resistor on it, the system is a ("PASSLOCK SYSTEM") how do I have that reprogramed, do you think that the ignition lock cylinder might be the problem?

Your going to need a lock smith to check the ignition system for you, you may need to reprogramme your keys, you can key around the security by by passing th system altogether by running hot wires to a button{ like new cars that start with pressing a button} or a key key switch.

1997 chey lumina runs fine until motor warm-up then shut off and won't start until motor cool off

Try getting your transmission solenoid replaced. After I got mine replaced it ran fine after that. That's the exact same thing my Lumina was doing.
