What about spark? If you have spark and fuel it has to run---maybe not well, but if you are certain you have spark, and you have fuel, and you have injector pulse, and it still won't run, then you have internal issues (loss of compression).
Why that would happen suddenly, I don't know. Perhaps a compression test is in order.
If compression is good, then go over everything again. You may have missed something.
Let us know about the spark test.

It has spark. we are preparing to put it in shop Monday but id love to not have to do that. Someone suggested the throttle body positioner?

Well if you said you tested for injector pulse, then perhaps not a bad TPS---I mean, if you are getting "base pulse" at start, with throttle essentially closed. I suppose you could vary the throttle opening to see if you still get injector pulse as you wiggle the throttle. There are ways to test the TPS and even adjust them (some of them) but you'll need the workshop manual and the proper equipment. It's a $60 part or so, and without testing, just a guess at this point.
Frustrating, I know. Diagnostic equipment and codes could be a big help here.
#71 of 77 My 91 Camero dies... wait... starts... goes... dies...Help
Sep 29, 2010 (10:08 am)
I have a 91 camero 6 cyl and sometimes it acts like it is out of gas and then dies. Before it dies, I tried to give it more gas and it does not register the attempt. It still sputters lightly and then dies. It does not over heat and oil pressure is good. I let it sit a while and it will start up... for a while ( the problem is- for how long? ). I really need some help with this one. I've gotten so many different answers from shops with horrible prices to JUST TAKE A LOOK. Can anyone help me narrow this down?
I kind of sounds like "running but not running" problem. I really haven't had too much trouble till yesterday and it took me 2.5 hours to get home only 10 miles away. Help Plz.

hello camaro girl 91.
1st guess is: catalytic converter is very clogged, requiring replacement or removal. (removing it or "gutting it" with a coathanger are both illegal for on-road use, but would quickly validate whether this guess is correct.)
2nd guess: fuel filter clogged or fuel pump failing.
#75 of 77 Problems already with the new ZL1 Camaro
Jan 05, 2012 (5:06 pm)
I have a new ZL1 ordered and already GM is starting their BS with this model. I received a call today from my dealer that said the carbon fiber hood insert is now on hold and not available. I suspect they have encountered some problems with this particular option even before it begins full scale production. I guess it's better to find out now than later but it was an option that I was looking forward to. Has anybody out there heard any reason behind them putting a hold onthis option. Of course my dealer rep. had no idea.

it's been common with previous camaros & new models for some options to be unavailable/shortages early in production run. did dealer ask you if you would like to wait as long as it takes for the hood to be available? also, dealer should have let you drop the carbon hood from the order, so your car could be produced right away, if that's what you prefer.
#77 of 77 Seat Back Latches
Jul 04, 2012 (2:12 pm)
The one issue I have with my 2011 1LT is that the seat back latches are really tough to use. After the dealer working on it, I can finally use the passenger seat latch but the driver's side is really hard - basically impossible for me - to use. Has anyone had a similar issue who found a solution they could share with me? The car is a year old and while I will probably almost never have a back seat passenger, it would be nice to be able to access the back seat from the driver's side. Otherwise it is an amazing car, no regrets on the purchase.
