Did you check for injection pulses-injector/s might not be opening and closing due to the computer is missing an ignition reference signal and not schronizing the injector/s or no power to the injector/s and the computer ground drivers-

Scanner has not showen icm prob but we are going to replace that anyway. Based on your suggestion rasmataz regarding ignition signal.
Will keep posting until prob is solved so that at least it will help someone else one day.

The CPS tells the computer to tell the ICM to fire coil. Do you have power to the coil

All replaced components mentioned above were purely hit and miss.
Ok.
Injectors are delivering fuel. Replaced top cover with new gasket set and reassembled components.
Still no start!
Makes no sense. So with 2 of us stumped ( I have 20yrs and larry 30+yrs) make a call to a GM tech
we know. He's interested and comes over.
He goes through everything again and is just as mystified!
Sit back with a crown and coke each

For those of you that dont know where this $12 component is. It sits to the left of the egr in front of the thermostat housing.
Disabling this sensor will enrich the mixture more.
At this point we are leaning toward possible fuel pump even though it pressures up fine.
However it is starting now like it should with the coolant temp sensor reconnected.
