1989 Pontiac Bonneville

the damned thing won't start! turns over but wont start. Did start once, but died right away. Think fuel filter would be it? Any ideas?

I've replaced the spark plugs, battery and fuel filter. It has started once more, but immediately dies again. Any other suggestions?

You might want to check your fuses if it has burned. Good luck on the repairs. Keep me posted.

I would suggest to check for fuel & spark. Good luck on the repairs. Keep us posted.

Possible mass air flow sensor. Tap on it while it is running or off and see if it now starts/hesitates.

Again, must start with the Basics (Hint). As OM said, have to know whether you are lacking fuel/and/or spark.

Without that, we cannot go any further.
