The easiest and fastest thing to check is SECURITY. If you see a flashing SECURITY message on your display that's the problem ,, if not then proceed to troubleshoot ... but what's happening to you is a classic GP problem

I'd try the maas air flow sensor. I had a 2000 grand prix that done the same thing. Unplug the MAF and the car should stay running if so than that's your problem

Scan for trouble codes first before you start randomly replacing parts and hoping for the best.
