Couldn't start .... explain symptoms:
Did starter crank?
was engine warm? cold?

The only symptom you describe is that it started when the engine was cold.

Try this:
Disconnect the battery cables and clean the cable clamps and the battery posts. Car can't start when warm with dirty battery connections (resistance too high). Low resistance when cold.

It sounds to me that your engine shut itself off when it was overheated. If that's the case then you are looking at a major engine repair based on what you are telling us.An engine that gets hot enough to shut itself off does serious damage internally before it dies. You will need to take it to a shop to a complete diagnosis. Hope this helps.

Has the check engine light come on at all? If it continues to sputter like that, chances are the engine light will come on eventually after so many drive cycles. Probably going to be either one of the coils going out or spark plug starting to foul. Also could be something as simple as the throttle body being very dirty.

2001 Grand Prix with fuel pump problem.

i would be inclined to try the crank sensor first ,renew it ,but this is one of them jobs where a fellow mechanic is no doubt getting a earfull from a female ,i pity him but this sort of problem can be very testing to say the least as it always starts when hes around ,i know the feeling well of this sort of fault and the associated problems involved where if you get it right first time your a god and if you get it wrong ,well you can imagine.If only it would do it when hes driving it ,so what i do is to give the customer my escort diesel and i use their for a few days .
