    Yeah, checked everything. Changed plugs, boots, coils tested good, fuel filter changed, will be changing f/p regulator because I don't like the testing method on 2.4 ltr motor, compression good (180+ on all 4 cyl), trigger signal good.

    Does anybody know how to check coil housing? There must be a way. Nothing in manuals. Also nothing about crankshaft or camshaft position sensors for this engine.

I'm sure you've figured out your problem by now but for others with the same symptoms. One more thing could be a clogged catalytic converter/muffler. Even though it is not as common as it was when cats were first mandated and new engines running so clean. With all driving being "in town" where the engine does not get to op. temp during the daily comute it is still a possiblity. Also I'm sure you checked air filter but I didn't see it mentioned above. And with the fuel press regulator, before condemning it ensure it has a good source of vacuum.

Sure its not the security feature?? does the securtiy light in the dash flash when key is in the on position? leave key in on position till it stops flashing (about 10min) then turn key off then start car. this is what my problem was.

My 2001 grand am will not even turn over

If you notice that the security light is on, that is a common issue with pontiacs. My mechanic told me that my security light was going to start giving me problems. The security light can stop you from starting your car for x amount of time. I was told that it is an easier solution just to disable the security than to get it fixed.

Just on a hunch, is the SECURITY light illuminated on the dash? This is common on GM vehicles and can put your car into anti theft mode. This link explains it and offers some DO IT YOURSELF solutions if this ends up being your problem.
