Check your spark plugs, fuel filter and fuel pump. Basically car needs spark and fuel to remain going. Check all those and replace when necessary.

Hard to start will not remain running. Ran fine yesterday

GM's have a bad issue with fuel pumps failing. If you do not have a pressure tester have someone spray a little quick start when its barely running, If it idles better ,,then the fuel pump will need to be tested.

Its also possible the problem is the idle air control valve. If you can get it running and it will rev up and drive ok off idle and idle is the only issue then most liklely the IAC is faulty.

try checkin your idle air control. most of the time it is a vacuumn line going into intake.pull it off and if the car revs up dont worry, it wont hurt it. if it does simply put it back on, if it dies you have a bad vacumn.

Vehicle 305 TBI--starting hard, wont idle, dies when reved

The IAC (idle air controller) allows some air to bypass the throttle plates in a TBI system. If your IAC is stuck in the closed position then that would explain why it won't idle when the throttle plate is closed. The IAC is threaded into the throttle body injection unit itself. It has a four-wire plug and is cylindrical. Try taking it out and cleaning it up with a copper or nylon brush and some solvent.
