First look under the dash for the reset button then turn the ignition to the run position and push the button. The alarm should chirp or at least flash the lights. then your car should start.

yes it can contribute to the problem. run the fault codes first to make sure . oxygen sensor problems will also cause the problems along with canister purge valve faults.

I would go to Autozone and ask them to check your computer for trouble codes. I would expect a Throttle Position Sensor, or EGR code to be present.

If you replaced the lock cylinder and it came with a new key, and the car has a factory anti-theft system, the new key has to be programed to the anti-theft module. If the new key does not have a small + sign stamped into it, it does not have the transponder built into it and you will need a new key that has the transponder and have it programed. Just cutting a copy of the key is only half the job Usually they will not start at all...that's the whole point of the anti-theft thing. The codes will not reset because the problem has not been fixed. Most locksmiths can do this for about fifty bucks, but not a hardware store that makes keys, or yes...the dreaded Chevy dealer. Your code reader does not have this programing capability.

Sounds like a servo seal (o-ring) in the trans itself. If the seal leaks, it will not allow the proper pressure to build in the circuit that engages bands and clutches. I see a trans rebuild in your future.

You'll need to figure out if you are missing fuel or spark to proceed.
Will it start using starting fluid sprayed into the intake ?

You may need a scanner to proceed - - is the cooling fan coming on at 230 degrees and does it cool down the engine to normal (200 degrees) ?

open the hood ,the starter is down by the manifold, tap on it while someone is cranking the switch if the starter turns ,its the starter.
