I tried it a few hours ago it will idle but as soon as you try giving it a little more gas it dies, I tryed it a little while ago and now it idle for
like 10 secound and then dies. Engine light comes on every once in a while
i checked it with a gm code key and it gave me a code 42, also the altinator changes high all the time, any ideas?

Check the fuel pressure and test the MAP and TPS sensors and check the ignition timing-DTC 42 deals with the electronic spark timing control circuit-
