Have someone inspect your timing belt/chain. Might have broken or jumped time.

It might be getting fuel but not enough...thats why it start for a bit the. Dies that also tells you its getting spark..have a fuel pressure check done..I bet there isnt any pressure it takes about 30 ---50 psi to run good

Have your computers checked. Is the firing of the injectors in time? When it starts for the 30 seconds, does it idle rough, have no power, or sound normal? You may even do something little like check fuel filters. If it gets fuel, and spark it may be a sensor out of whack causing something to change from the computers. Oh for the good old days.
