Spray some starting fluid down the throttle body. If it runs a few seconds on the starting fluid it's a fuel problem. Could be a fuel pump, fuel pump relay, or fuel pump resistor (GTP models, like yours, only, on the resistor). If it won't run on the starting fluid check for spark. If you don't have spark it's an ignition problem. If you do have spark run a compression test to see if it's jumped timing. If all cylinders test low or zero it's jumped timing. HTH. -Jim

Make sure you have spark
