Just a guess if you have another ignition key try that key you may have a "security issue". I have seen a blocked cat converter do this too but you would have noticed a loss of power recently.A professional grade scan tool with advanced Pontiac/ GM capabilities would save a lot of time by looking at a lot of sensor values without having to look at each sensor individually.

it sounds like the fuel safety shut off when in a front end wreck its made to brake and kill the fuel its on the passenger side upper frame rail it has 1 wire going in and one going out try putting a jumper wire between them if that works then replace that part
