This Auto is driveing me crazy! Some times the engine will start every time when I take it to a mechanic but after I leave it starts not cranking and the anti theft light flashes. But according to the manuals it doesnot have an antitheft device on it. What should I check on this auto? I don't have any pictures of it and right now I don't want any!

The anti theft wont keep it from cranking, it shuts down fuel pressure. Next time the light is flashing, try this
GM PASS LOCK RELEARN- Ignition to "run" position, try to start and let key return to "run" position
Approx ten minutes security light will go off
Turn key "off" and wait 5 seconds
Repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 relearns.
Turn key off, then start it
