With the air cleaner assembly off you should be able to actually see the two fuel injectors spraying. If not check to see if the injectors are getting a pulse signal using a noid light. If they are, injectors are bad. If not you have to find out why you don't have a pulse signal. Since it will run when gas is poured into the throttle body it's definitely a fuel problem. HTH. -Jim

This may be related to the security system. The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Normally when the injectors are turned off, the car will run for a second or two, and then stall. When it's the security locked out starter, you won't even hear a click when you turn the key. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a lock through it? This is a common problem worth looking into. http://www.diy-gm-security.com/ & http://newrockies.com/
