Stalling 96 sunfire starts and runs for 3 seconds and dies

Answers :

If it starts up fine and then dies (2 SEC) it is the PASSLOCK security system, those cars are fairly notorious for that problem.

The passlock system will cut power to the fuel injectors after 2 sec. Use a test light and see if the injector power is being shut off.
Sounds like a faulty fuel pump or a clogged fuel filter
