Will not continue running

You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem to proceed.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump blockage, or a list of other things. Is the oil pressure light on ?
If this is a vortec engine, it requires 60psi or more of fuel pressure to run. Have you checked the fuel pressure and is it enough ?

Injector not working why put new injector new computer new fuel pump does it have injector relay 1987 celebrity

Check fuel pressure. Have you replaced the fuel filter on schedule? Verify that the fuel pump is getting power. Power goes through an in-line fuse, then the fuel pump relay or the oil pressure sensor. (The relay bypasses the oil pressure sensor while the engine starts, but fuel pump power goes through the sensor during normal run operation. If you lose oil pressure, the fuel pump is shut off to protect the engine.) On four-cylinder models, the fuse is in the fuse block (E PUMP 10)
The fuel injectors are connected to the ECM fuse on one side and straight to the engine computer on the other side. Check the connectors and wiring, especially at the injector.

What you need to do is check you fuel pressure. Go to a local auto parts store and buy a fuel injection pressure tester. The pressure fitting is on the top of the motor its a 3/8 ish sized metal line and has a screw on fitting like a tire valve does. This line comes up from the back of the motor to the right of the distributor and goes down into the intake. Make sure to have a rag handy to catch the fuel seepage. After you connect the pressure tester turn the key on and off three times and read the gage you should have atleast 58 pounds of pressure. If you have 56 pounds it won't run because the fuel injectors are a poppit valve style and need atleast 58 pounds of pressure to operate.

96s10 starting problems replaced throdle position sensor,fuelpump relay,no start shot of starting fluid fires right up and runs

Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. You should have 60psi to 65psi with the fuel pump primed and engine not running. Once the engine has been started, there should be a 5psi drop. Make sure the fuel filter has been replaced and that the fuel pump is making at least 60psi. Anything less or more then 65psi will not activate the fuel injectors, the other thing to is that the spider injection system on the vortec are know to go bad and you may have to replace the system. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your S-10 running 100% again.

Starts then quits

Was there fuel pressure before you changed everything? It could also be the pressure regulator sticking or bad. When you crank it over and let off the key you should hear the fuel pump run for a couple seconds and then shut off. If it is doing that then I would be looking to see if you have likes hooked up wrong at the back of the engine or try replacing the pressure regulator.

I'm not sure of vin? My info shows oil pressure switch in parallel with fuel pump relay, so if that switch is functional and has voltage, once you crank it enough to bring up oil pressure, the pump should run even without the relay. The voltage for load side of relay and oil pressure switch comes from ecm B fuse. The voltage for control side of fuel pump relay comes from pcm.
Any other issues besides fuel? Engine cranking do you have spark at the plugs and fuel injector pulse? If your missing the last two, have to check for rpm signal.
