1989 Chevy Celebrity 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 74.000 miles

was driving car and it stalled out, restarted car but at about 10mph it would stall out again kept starting it again and drove it home very slowly. Once home turned it off and cannot get it to start at all now, has gas in it and plenty of cranking power and can hear the fuel pump charge the line.

Hi zeltyone, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation

To detrmine if its a fuel or spark problem do below

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 in away from ground have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, cap and rotor /distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, ECM, Ignitor camshaft and crankshaft sensors and computer. Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it

I have replaced all these items and it still wont start. Throttle position sensor, crankshaft position sensor, pcv valve, the ecm computer. I have tested the fuel pressure at the schrader valve its at 47, We also sprayed fuel in the throttle body and that is the only time it fired for a split second. Can the TCC selenoid tell the car to go in limp mode on this old of a car? Could it be the TCC or not, or some other sensor? I have run out of ideas and almost money. Please help!
