If none of the above satisfy the solution to your problem, there is one other possibility, unfortunately an expensive one. If your ignition system is working fine, (coils and all), you may have lost your timing chain. I have the same year cavalier, and its a 4cyl, same situation and it turns out that the timing chain broke. Have the compression checked.

Well on the old type cars it use to be the coil that would cause it not to start.so my gues and i might be wrong is one of the coils has gone out some cars have 3 coils with a v6.anyway i say it's an ignition problem.

Need to actually,physically,check spark.Pull a plug wire off the plug,insert a medium size phillips head screwdriver into the spark plug wire boot,making sure it clicks in and engages.Lay the screwdriver's metal shank about a 1/4" from a metallic ground source (not the fuel line).Have someone crank the car over while you are looking for an arc between the screwdriver and ground.No arc...no spark...cheap easy way to check for spark and eliminate or not,the ignition system.

It could very well be any of the stated problems, however ensure you take time to troubleshoot 1 problem at a time....I had a similar experience it tunred out to be my fuel system was clogged up having not changed my filter for a while and it bunred out the gas pump so it would work and stop.
If the pressure needed to open the injectors fall too low that will stall the engine so check all possibilities ok.
Further it could be one of your sensors acting up so have a diagnostic run on it ....

Check your battery terminals and clean them with a wire brush if they are corroded and make sure they are tight. If this doesn't work check the following: Fuel tank empty?, spark plugs incorrectly gapped if they are new, if old- maybe replace them, possibly faulty ignition coils, then maybe the crankshaft sensor is bad or timing chain is broken. I got the latter of information from the Haynes Repair Manual. Check this stuff in order. Good luck.
