Need to get a scan tool and look at the data stream while it is running for alot more info.Also any trouble codes.Sounds like initially,the engine isn't getting any fuel.I would have a pressure gauge connected to the fuel rail on the engine,so i could monitor the fuel pressure while all this is going on.Items to look at on the data stream would be timing,what timing is the PCM commanding for the engine.Also,have you checked for continuos power feed to the coils during this no start condition,and fire at the plugs while cranking.You could possibly still have spark,but maybe it is extremely weak?I have seen bad ignition switches cause weird problems before too.Many things power up through the ignition switch,just a thought.Have also seen bad PCM's cause strange problems..38 volts is a little on the low side for GM.Usually see those at,at least .50 and up,and rise steadily while pressing the throttle,up to just under 5.0 volts.Potentiometer with 5 volt supply.Vacuum leak can be checked with engine running at a steady idle speed,spray brake cleaner all around the intake manifold and listen for engine speed change.

had same problem i would check the Idel Air Valve and also check all of your vaccum hose lines makeing sure there are no cracks or splits in rubber connectors if there is repair immediatelt because over time they start to dammage the internal parts fo the engine and if youve replace tps mass air etc. sounds like a vaccum hose problem

On the plus side, when you are finished, you will have a new control system! On the negative side, you just spent more money on parts than if you'd have just taken it to a dealer! I hope you tested those components and determined they have failed. Any codes?
Seems like the only thing you missed is the coil and the temp sending unit (just for laughs, unplug it and see if it stalls out at the same time), or possibly a security system malfunction. Get a decent volt/ohmeter and a vehicle specific manual such as chiltons or haynes. Do some testing, hot and cold and compare your results.You need to determine what is shutting down (fuel, spark or both) Once you develop a "picture" regarding what is happening, you will be more able to find a solution. I can't give you a "fix" on this one only because to properly identify the problem, I'd need to do the same testing I suggested.
