If you have fuel at the fuel rail and have injector pulse, then you likely have no spark. The spark system contains, plugs wires, then the wires go to coil packs. These coil packs are mounted on top of an ignition module. The ignition modules has two wires that go to the crankshaft position sensor which provides the power.
If you have spark in some cylinders, then the coil pack is bad. If you have no spark what so ever, then test the crankshaft position sensor with a voltmeter and the wire harness disconnected. If you don't have an ohm or volt reading, replace it. If you do have a reading, then test the ignition module.

Do check all fuses first.

Check the basics,one you say you have spark,two do you have compression? and three do you have fuel getting to the fuel rail?

Engine shuts down


The only way to know for sure is to hook a gauge to the rail and check the fuel pressure when it won't start.
Sitting for a few minutes and restarting is normally a sign of a relay or coil cooling off.
There should be a EEC relay that powers the dist module and ECM.
I know you said you have spark, but it could be something else
related.
Also, if you have spark at the right time and no fuel pressure, you should be able to use starting fluid to substitute.
I don't suppose you have dual tanks and the switching valve is the problem ?

Starts then dies & won't restart


check fuel pressure, should be 40 psi.
try 2 things

spray starting fluid in air intake to see if it will stay running. It's fue then.

Try turning key to on nd wait 5 seconds for system to build pressure and pump to shut off. Turn key off, wait for relay clcik noise or 10 seconds. then turn key to ON again and wait 5 seconds to build pressure again. Then start engine. If it starts better, you have a bad check valve in the fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator on the fuel rail (unlikely).

Engine was running fine and shut it off 5 min. Tried restart and engine cranks but won't fire. Dual tanks 1 new fuel pump.Switch tanks still no start, tried next day, runs fine???????


Step #1 in any automobile diagnosis is "Isolate the system"
Switching fuel tanks may have seemed like a good idea, but it did not definitively determine whether the the fuel is getting to the fuel rails, so you are no closer to eliminating the fuel devery system than you were when the engine died.
If it does it again, you should do the easiest things first.
Pull a spark plug wire and check to see that you have good spark reaching the spark plugs. Good spark will eliminate the entire spark control system.
Only if you have good spark should you suspect a "part-time " fuel system problem. The Fuel delivery system can be eliminated if actual fuel pressure is checked at the fuel rail. (although you could still have injectors not firing for one reason or another)
You are losing one of these systems. (spark or fuel) only once you have determined which one, can you continue diagnosis to pinpiont the failure.

Disconnect the fuel lines at the fuel rail, turn on the key and observe if the fuel pump is sending fuel thru. If it is, then the problem is probably electrical. Remove a spark plug wire from the spark plug and hold it close to the engine block while someone cranks the engine. If you observe the spark jumping to the engine block, the problem is probably fuel related. Just begin isolating the problems eliminating each as you test.

95 grand prix died at a stop sign. It is trying to turn over but will not start. The gas tank is full. May be fuel pump?


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.
