WILL NOT STAY RUNNING

1997 Oldsmobile Achieva

Engine Performance problem
1997 Oldsmobile Achieva 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles

I HAVE A 2.3L QUAD 4 ENGINE THAT WILL NOT STAY RUNNING. IT WILL START FOR 5-10 SEC THEN DIE ON ME. IF I TRY TO RESTART IT JUST CRANKS. I HAVE TO TURN THE KEY OFF AND RESTART JUST TO GET IT TO START AGAIN BUT IT DIES RIGHT AWAY. I HAVE CHECKED FUEL PRESSURE, ITS AT 50PSI. I'VE REPLACED THE IAC MOTOR THE MAP SENSOR THE TPS. I PULLED THE ENTIRE FUEL RAIL WITH INJECTORS AND CRANKED THE CAR TO SEE IF THEY SHOOT ANY FUEL AND THEY DO.

Has the check engine light come on? When it doesn't start, are you getting spark?
